Another nice opening today on 15 meters. While running 10 watts of carrier I called CQ on 21.430 today at around 1600 UTC and Ralph - KD6OS came right back. Signals ranged from S-6 to just over S-9 during the course of our 45 minute chat. There didn't seem to be any activity anywhere up and down the band but of course a sideband station tried calling CQ right on top of us for reasons that defy logic. He left after a minute or so. At any rate, it looks like the band is in decent shape at the moment. The link below leads to a 45 second YouTube video of Ralph's Flex 5K this morning.

One thing I'm certain of is that there is too much certainty in the world.

I decided to take a break from modern technology SDR ... for a while, and have the Drake T4XC and R4C on the bench.
Conditions have been good enough to have a few QSO's with my 20 watts and Shure 444.
I might throw the L4B into the mix later today, so give a listen if you can.
