Hey Tim!

There was a group in the vicinity of 7150-7165 off and on some nights, John KX5JT and a few others were providing a presence. Find a spot, throw out a CQ or three. It might take a bit longer to stir up some activity, but I managed to get contacts probably 95% of the time I called.

Was good working you and Al on 80. Sorry for bugging out on you the last time, but the good wife gave the dinner call. You were coming into NC quite nicely, hope to do it again soon.

There is some faint BC on 7.295 after midnight lately but 7.290 is usually pretty clear.  I work this week (except Mon night/ Tue morning).

I'm hoping this carrier is you..... 20 db over carrier just popped up after a couple of CQ's on 7.270

Could be a B.C. station warming up for the top of the hour... it's actually on .275 but there is no audio yet, been 5 minutes

Heading to 7.265

Hey Tim.. noise is way up at the moment....

Lane and I are trying our luck on 7.265, some tx he's up in the clear and other times in the noise....

A bit rough.... I wonder if 20 is open.
