Jim:

Ha-ha !    Having a pick'em up  no longer makes you a Southerner.  Drove by the local car dealer here in town and everything that wasn't an SUV was a pick up !  Not a van or car in sight !

They have some good food down there, but I person ally will pass on the biscuits & gravy ... it reminds me of being at Grandma's down in Indiana when after dinner she'd toss leftovers in a dish for cat's outside and it looked just like biscuits & gravy. Poor cats probably had clogged arteries !  But that's one way to get rid of feral cats.

Love me some biscuits and sausage gravy!  Love me some grits with butter salt and pepper.
Love Texas BBQ, favorite is from the Salt Lick in Driftwood Texas (not the round rock location).  Has been on Man V Food, Guy Fieri, and a couple other TV shows.  It's about a 4-5 hour drive from here so don't go often, but do order it shipped to the house, and it is great.  https://saltlickbbq.com/about-salt-lick/
Love my pickup Truck.  That alone shows I am not a yankee.
But would love to have the propagation that yankees have.

Several years ago I was out East running mobile in MA and up through ME.  One thing I noticed back then was the it was much easier to get into Europe. Have also noticed that changing QTH by about 350 miles up into MN from my QTH sometimes changes propagation patterns. I guess it's like real estate people say "location..location...location.."... guess that could apply to radio ?

Jerry,
While I was waiting I turned on the radio and made an effortless contact with F6HCP (Bernard).  100% copy both ways.  It was like the old days.  After that I wandered up 20m and saw JA7OUV!  I can count on two fingers the times that I have even seen JA stations here on the East side.  I called a number of times just for the heck of it but he either faded or went QRT.  Must find a way to spend more BITC.

Well last evening (02:14) I spoke with Giovanni (IT9PZM) (40m) on his boat which is anchored in a harbor near Palermo Sicily.  We last worked way back in 2015.

Under usual conditions Euros from here are a piece of cake but over the last year it hasn't been that way so it is good to see the change.  After all there's nothing but water between us.  I also found that I do much better when the geo field is very quiet.  Hopefully things will improve a bit so there is a little excitement on the bands.

New Opportunities for the 24/7 Endorsement

Rick - N7WE
 

Daylight Savings Time starts in most of North America at 2 AM local time this Sunday March 11th.  In most of the European Union it starts Sunday March 25th.  (There are regional exceptions).  But world wide, UTC remains unchanged!  For those working on the 24/7 Endorsement this shifts the UTC blocks in local time, creating some new opportunities without having to change your daily routine!  Take advantage of it!

Jerry,
While I was waiting I turned on the radio and made an effortless contact with F6HCP (Bernard).  100% copy both ways.  It was like the old days.  After that I wandered up 20m and saw JA7OUV!  I can count on two fingers the times that I have even seen JA stations here on the East side.  I called a number of times just for the heck of it but he either faded or went QRT.  Must find a way to spend more BITC.

Saw K0JMJ on 20m this afternoon and decided to look up his grid square. It came up AA00aa . Huh ?  So, I decided to do a sear on grid AA00aa and what came up surprised me. Seems there are dozens of stations from all over the world located in this grid square.  But why ???    Think it might be an error either deliberate or a glitch.

Just something to do while waiting for propagation to pick up...

Under usual conditions Euros from here are a piece of cake but over the last year it hasn't been that way so it is good to see the change.  After all there's nothing but water between us.  I also found that I do much better when the geo field is very quiet.  Hopefully things will improve a bit so there is a little excitement on the bands.

Several years ago I was out East running mobile in MA and up through ME.  One thing I noticed back then was the it was much easier to get into Europe. Have also noticed that changing QTH by about 350 miles up into MN from my QTH sometimes changes propagation patterns. I guess it's like real estate people say "location..location...location.."... guess that could apply to radio ?

I use Stu’s, K6TU, online propagation prediction service, which creates 24 maps by band – one for each hour Zulu time. 

 

https://www.k6tu.net/

 

It’s amazingly accurate and shows just what Jerry says – a couple hundred miles difference can make a big difference.
