I'm really disappointed. Managed to talk my wife into helping me move the Collins 32V3 to the bench. Wired it up for 15-meters, and ... nothing heard.
It's been two weeks now without a whimper of a signal. I do hear the W1AW code bulletins .. but nothing else.

Sad .. I had to put up a 75-meter dipole and start talking about my cat and last colonoscopy.

15 meters always seems to be between a rock and hard place. As the cycle heads down to a minimum, it always hits this band big time. And, unlike 10 meters which is also affected by this, 10 meters has the advantage being able to take advantage of Sporadic E openings. Europeans are having a ball on 10 meters right now as  type.

Sorry to hear you had to move to the dark side
