I usually give up at 2AM Central because the noise floor is S9+ on 40M-10M, but I will try to stay up till a bit past 03 AM Central Std on 80m through the week days if it would help anybody, but I will just be watching the waterfall. If it gets busy I could get coffee and make it into 04:00CST.

Take care, y'all!

2. hopefully make contact quickly
3. set alarm for 3am and take a nap
4. repeat

New Year's Eve was rough. That was the above from 1am - 5am, but it
