Yepper , pretty lousy today.  I did make a 10 meter contact earlier but nothing now and 20M is terrible.
A Index is up there today at 11!!  Flux is only 72  ,  so condx are not the best for sure.  Only about 2 or 3 light
signals on 20 at this time.

Good weekend to spend time with your kids, or your wife, or your parents, or your dog. 

Some day, you'll wish you had just one more day with them.

Or spend time with your cat 😄

That’s really pushing the envelope – but if it works for you (and the cat)…

Well... you said "dog"  and some don't have dogs and prefer felines.  Just like media coverage, if the plug omne party you have to plug the other. :-)

That’s really pushing the envelope – but if it works for you (and the cat)…

Seriously, it's been raining here for about 3 days and with marginal conditions it has been slim pickings here in IL.  Keeps looking like some European openings, but they quickly fade after a few contacts. Haven't seen anything into Asian and only a few South Americans.  Might be a good time to take up another hobby ?
 
Did make about a dozen Q's yesterday, but nothing out of ordinary except for WD8ASA on 10m and I had all 4 elements aimed Southwest , but he quickly faded. There may be some sporadic E openings on 10m this summer, but the contacts should be kept short to allow for conditions.  In past years I have been able to work "backscatter" by aiming beam to either S-SE for East Coast or  S-SW  for West coast... it sometimes is surprising when you aim directly at beam heading for station, but can't hear a thing and then point SE/SW and they pop out of noise.
 
Think I have also worked Aurora (no, not the town !) by pointing due North. Signals are weird sounding like they're underwater, but workable. Great fun, but haven't done it on PSK although it might be possible. Always something new to explore.

Yep, I am so excited to be out working after my knee replacement 10 weeks ago. It is already my "good" knee, and the more I use it, the more the other one hurst -LOL! I will be driving down the hill to home at 00:00 to get a 365 for tomorrow, pick up a hoe for ditch cleaning, and come back up. We have the RV so we can nap in comfort during breaks!

Remote control would be chancy as cellular service is very iffy up here. I can't wait to put up an antenna here - I could run my IC-7000 portable
