Yep. Here in Arizona we never adopted DST when we had the option. I think during WWII it was not optional.

I heard Chas in NJ really well, but that was it.  I was doing something else so I didn’t ask for relay.  The bands have been pretty bizarre for about 10 days.  Not unusable, just bizarre.

We have a place here in Houston metal recycling that pays in 2.00 bills and you can buy uncut sheets from the mint. Try giving someone Susan B Anthony dollars most of the kids today think the dollars and 2 dollar bills are not real.

NØNBD's tenure as tonight's NCS was brief.  He was 559/569 here in NJ.

Besides myself, other would-be QNIs I heard were K3NLT 579/599; K4VIG 579; KV6Z 559.

It will be tougher next week with Daylight Saving Time.

With an hour less of evening darkness courtesy of daylight saving time, kilomile QSOon 40m and 80m to the west will be more difficult from NJ.

But I'll still give it a try.

Important reminder

John Lonigro
 

I usually let the automatic reminder tell you about the Second Sunday Sprint coming up this Sunday (March 10th).  However, this Sunday is special.  It's the first day of Daylight Saving Time. Since the sprint schedule is relative to local time, not UCT, the time for the net is 7:00pm - 9:00pm Sunday night Central Daylight Time (8:00-10:00 EDT, 5:00-7:00 PDT, etc).  However, if you like to use UTC instead, the sprint times are now 0000Z-0200Z Monday.  They will continue like this until we go back to standard time in November.  The bottom line is, unless you use UTC, the net will be at the same local time it was last month.  The only difference is it will be lighter outside when the net begins, which may affect propagation.

Also, if your smoke detector still has a replaceable battery, it might be a good time to check or replace it.  And check the batteries in your weather radio.

Re: Success! My Hilltopper 20

K9NVN,

Don't give up the ship OM.

This dead band era has been a revelation to me. Off air for years my last QRP activity yielded contacts like Norway on 30M running 1W. Japan mobile at rest on 40M running 3W.

It's good to be back in the game regardless. And condx can only improve.

I will keep trying.  I HAVE heard some stations on my HT20...but so far no joy on a QSO. 

I remain hopeful ... and the weekend is coming up
