I heard K5UJ Chicago calling around 7:40 am on or about 3885 kHz AM.  You were just readable here south of Allentown PA on my HQ-120X.

I gave several calls back but I guess you gave it up by the time I had the Viking II warmed up and tuned from being set on 1885 previously.

Tom, I am amazed you heard me.  The band turned out to be in pretty good condition.   I fired up the 1000MP on 3885 at 6:30 central time for the early Midwest Classic Radio roundtable that precedes the Net that starts an hour later.   Because it was 78 degrees in the shack I did not fire up any big heat producing gear (namely the amp) so I was running the yaesu box at 40 watts to my dipole up 45 feet.  No one was around which was unusual so I called CQ until W9QI showed up at 7 a.m.  I'm really sorry I did not hear you.  At first I was on rx with two antennas and my noise canceling box with some attenuation before I bypassed it to use the transmit dipole on rx.  I bet when you called me I had the preamps on the rx antenna potted down some.  I had no idea my pw 50 watts would go that far in summer.  just goes to show me that I should never expect condx to be poor in summer.
