Re: 40 AND 80 METER NET REPORTS

John - KK4ITX
 

I could only catch every 3-4 letter from NCO on 40m.  QSP was really quick and coupled with my poor hearing it was not easy to even determine that I had made it on the net.  At least Johnny got me in the log.

I did not even consider 80m as the noise level here was S9 and above...……. the Snowbirds are back !

Picked up a DMR at a hamfest last weekend.  After I figure it out I'll see if I can stay awake for the DMR group.
