I believe I heard you down in the noise, but not strong enough to attempt a call.  Lots of lightning noise here so I shut everything down.

Lots of QRN. Really steady. Had a nice talk with Dave. Joe N1VIV joined. Dave relayed via recording.

First time back on 20 from my QTH in a long time.

I'll use the D104 next time as Timtron said the EV638 sounded like I had a "sock in my mouth". Started feeling better so I trudged upstairs and began throwing switches.

 I am on a business trip so I will not make tomorrows "Monday Evening 20M AM Net". We had a good turn out last week, so step up folks, check in, and also if a tall ship, pause for check-ins before turning it around.

The Monday Evening 20M AM Net Report, 14,330 Khz @ ~7 PM Eastern.

  Tonight the group was a bit small, and there was short skip. For the first time I could hear Ralph KD6OS, about a 400 mile hop from Round Rock, Tx. to Porum, Ok.

The check-ins included:

KD6OS
WA4NJY
W9AD
W2IQK
WD5JKO

Conditions were variable, and the Tall ship at my QTH was Dave, W9AD (S9) followed by Kyle W2IQK (S7). Ralph and Ed were S4-S7 with rapid QSB.

Had a great QSO with W0VMC and WA1HLR on 14.330 lat night about 9 PM EDT. KB2WIG and WA2ROC were also in there but couldn't hear them. Tim and Robert both had 20 over 9 plus signals in NJ. Tim was even strong off the back of the beam.

Pete,

   I had signed out before you checked in. At first you were in the noise, but after 2 or 3 transmissions you built up to S9+ in Texas.

   There was a big group last night over a 2 hour period. I logged the following stations from Round Rock, Texas:

N2XD
W0LS
KA4KOE
AC0OB
KD4UMU
W0VMC
WA1HLR
WA2ROC
KJ4QVJ
VE6CQ
W6TSJ (first west coast check in this year!)
WA1UQM
KB2WIG
WD5JKO

The group went from Net mode to round table mode, to split frequency mode, back to net mode. It was all fun. At one point the "Tron" gave a dissertation on making a beam antenna.

Split freek was my fault; I think I bumped the VFO knob on the beast whilst redipping the plate.

I didn't fire up until late; I was crawling around the roof cleaning out the gutters earlier in the evening. Not sure how many of the stations listed I would have been able to hear or work. I did work AC0OB several weeks ago when I checked in. The 20 meter skip can be funking at times plus I think the "K" Index last night was 8 or 10. And, my tower was fully nested so the tri-bander was only about 35 feet off the ground. I did hear Robert, W0VMC, later that evening on 40 meters but he wasn't as strong. Working Maine to NJ at any time on 20 meters is not a common occurrence.

  It was frustrating in that people seemed to be hearing me, but those same stations were right at my noise level. Only Timtron broke above the noise floor. I could hear Nicky from Ireland, but there was a rapid flutter on him. He was stronger then many stateside stations that I usually hear well.

Maybe next week will be different.

The conditions were quite interesting. The last time I was on with the group was about a month ago. I could not hear WA1HLR at all. This time he was loud - 20/25 over 9. I could not hear stations in TN and KY a month ago. This time KD4UMU in KY was 20 over 9! Later in the evening, I could hear Phil, KA4KOE in GA. So the shorter skip was working FB. But at the same time Nick was loud from Ireland, so longer skip was working well too. Jim, I was hearing you but you were not as strong as in the past.

I was only able to listen this week. Heard W7IUC/4 IIRC calling CQ a few times then move down to .320 to work a KP4 split mode. Also heard Phillip but not as strong as previous weeks.

Bucket net was active on 332.
