bad value: 'LA,East Baton Rouge' - No idea on this one. Looks right to me.
bad value: 'MT,Lewis and Clark' - Should it be Lewis & Clark?

On the left coast, I have been monitoring but haven't seen a trace on 7.070 for the last two hours.

I hope the antenna is still connected, HI.

Just be aware even though the band doesn’t sound good and only band noise you hear. I have been up sporadically during the early morning hours and just started calling CQ not thinking there was a soul around. Usually after a few minutes (or maybe 10 or 15) all of a sudden out of the clear blue and blank waterfall there is a signal!!! I have been fortunate the last week and pretty much got a contact while up early for hours I needed (0400-0500Z hours). This morning on 40M it seemed hopeless at about 0448Z or so an F1ABE answered my CQ!! that totally shocked me. I actually worked him for both the 0400Z and 0500Z hours. I also worked TX and did see a couple other traces. then I woke up again (missed the 0700Z hour) but got the 0800Z hour from someone in AZ. All signals were 599.

Well, I got my contacts for the 0400 and 0500Z hours. So, I’m off to bed for the night. Thanks to all and those that tried. I actually worked F1ABE for both hours and also worked a TX station. The Europe is what is
a shocker for me, especially this time of morning so maybe the propagation is going to be nice for us for awhile.

Mike, K6MKF, sorry but did not see your trace at all either. Maybe again sometime.
