Ge Group:

I am going to try the 40 M net at 7:30 central time, 00:30 Z.

We have a line of Thunderstorms about 100 miles west of us, and that gives me a s8 QRN level, so I hope I can hear the QRP signals.

We will see!

Exchange is any thing you want, please throw in you name after your call, I know most of you but I need a little help with the names.

Thanks and good luck, hope you can hear over the QRN as well.

Hope it better next week, thank you all for trying.
