I know that you were on 40m last night because I could see the hams talking to you but nada on your end from here.
That is unusual because 40m usually works well locally most of the time.
There's just no accounting for what is going on up there. I get Canadian special event stations in Ontario no problem but then see stations coming in from CA and end up working a station in the Czech Rep. with a 599. I've been on 40m more lately because 20m has been really bad here too.
Good thing I repaired the 40m radio when I did or I would be pretty high and dry here. ( That's "beached" for all you Navy guys)
Hangin out on 40m.

Randy is correct ... 20m was like walking thru the desert.... lousy , lousy conditions... signals were 599 one minute and gone the next !

It's not your antenna. 20 has been up and down all day. Everything else sucked too.

I'm finally on PSK. Been a long weekend of work, cleaning/re-arranging the shack, and playing with some JT65. I've gone over to 20 psk, and it's been dead all day. I'm seeing some signals on 40. I NEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEED to get a better 40m antenna.
Where 'bouts are y'all on the bands tonight?
