The K and A indices are terrible right now and that could be why the awful band condx tonight. I’m usually hearing a bunch of signals about now
Log it! I did. Hi Hi
You need a qso for 0500z too?
Yep , you got it I got the 599 and I sent you a 559 … Your signal was pretty weak. Your last xmsn did come up a bit but lots of QSB but I did copy. Tnx
I sent you a report...I’m pretty sure you responded as I copied 599.
Am I correct?
I’m calling you but you are very weak and not much of a trace on the waterfall right now Milt.
OK, I’ll stay put and keep calling.
Ok, I did try calling you but I think my Windows VM is going haywire on my MAC for some reason. It does this every once in a while so I’m going to try and restart the Windows and see what happens.
OK, no problem.
Let me know or answer my cq.
I see you Milt but my computer is acting up on me for some reason. I need to restart fresh so I’ll get with you here shortly.
Dan, I’ll be cq’ing on 40m
Sounds good Milt. Thanks
That’s 9 and 10 pm here. Easily do-able.
40m then 20m as a backup?
Milt — I’m in NC — I should have said I was working on Zulu times for Tuesday … So for tonight I will need Wednesdays Zulu time which are 0400-0800Z. I won’t be up all those hours, however, I sure can try to get the 0400 and 0500 Zulu hours for Wednesday. Your local time will be on tuesday since you are in CA I believe. I’ll shoot for 0400 & 0500Z tonight (that’s be Midnight and 1 AM my local time)
You want to give it a try again tonight?...If you need anything on Tuesday...
I’ve a meeting to attend tonight, so I’ll be getting home around 10 or so Los Angeles time and can sked with you.
Where are you located?

Well, I know I did not give any lead time or notice to anyone but got up and thought I would give it a try. Huh, no go it looks like. Not even a peep. I checked the solar indices and they look pretty terrible. Actually my software I use shows the indices and they did not look good at all. I thought I would check a couple of web pages to compare and they are right on, lousy. So, back to bed for tonight.
