Only 8 dates left to fill for my 366 now. September 6 and 7 come up before my next surgery date. I am having my other (right) knee replaced on September 13th.

If not, I’ll get the hubby to turn on the rig and fire up the software, and I’ll remote to it from my laptop. I should be able to make it down the stairs and back up, but it won’t be easy – that will be my adventure for the day, for sure! I’m gonna make it come hell or high water!



After that one, I’ll only have 5 left to go . . . _.


Re: Is the website down?

podxs070.com uses Dreamhost for its nameservers. Dreamhost was part of a wide scale distributed attack today after becoming the new home of a very controversial white supremacist website:

https://arstechnica.com/tech-policy/2017/08/dreamhost-takes-a-beating-after-hosting-racist-daily-stormer/

It seems that podxs070.com was caught in the crossfire. A few other sites I'm responsible for were also affected today. Sigh....

Thanks Jerry! And thank you to Barry too, he was trying to answer me at the same time as Jerry.

I can usually get into Florida pretty well on 20 meters with the hexbeam, 40 uses a different antenna which isn’t as good but I’ll look for you.

Re: 40m somewhat open during day

Steve Ford wrote an article about that a few months ago in QST, pretty interesting.  60 meters seems to open more now also.

For those  of you who are around during the day time hours,  don't count 40m as a "dead band".   Been seeing stations in IN and NM from here near Chicago.  Have made a few daytime contacts this summer with sunspot cycle at minimum.  When sunspot cycle is at minimum propagation is better on lower bands to some extent.
