Mike, I'm usually on 20 then 40 now that the sun is out longer.  On several times during the day and evening for short  periods of an hour or less. I try PSK around 0000 to 0100. I'll try to catch you agn. I have club meeting tonight, so not tonight. 😉

Indeed I was concentrating on FT8 for a couple weeks, but have been trying to get at least one QSO on PSK per day agn.

When are you getting on and what band?  I know we've worked before but I haven't seen you for quite a while. 

I'm usually on at 0000(ish) UTC.  I'll start on 20 meters and if it's dead I'll move to 40.  We're probably a bit close for 20 meters; I'll have to check my log to see where we worked before.

Occasionally, I'll jump on for a few minutes around 2000 UTC or somewhere in between, but that's spotty at best.

Don't feel bad.  There was a period not too long ago when it seem like all the propagation was one-way.  Seems to go in cycles and it must be your turn in the barrel!

 I have been having a heck of a time getting responses to CQ on PSK31. Other stations just aren't hearing me. FT8 is usually better, but I don't have the same *quantity* results that some others do on that mode, but I'm satisfied with the contacts I've made so far.
