Had a great time with Tim WA1HLR, Steve KB1VWC and Brandon K5IIA last night. The band was in amazing shape as all listed above could be heard everywhere! The long distance wasn't as surprising as was Tim and Steve being able to hear each other!

Skip K7YOO was also in there but signed out as I was joining.

Ya never know how 40 meters will pan out so give it a try!

Hello,
On which freq. you were talking?
Between 7275 - 7285 is mostly free in Europe.

Hi Henk!

 We ended up on 7283kHz due to BC and SSB activity around 7290kHz. This was around 0000Z to 0130Z when I had to leave. I'm sure Tim and Steve carried on past that.

Thanks Bud,
Mostly I listen before I go to work on my bike.
Thats between +/- 05.10 - 05.30 UTC/GMT time.
In Dokkum (Holland) +/- 06.10 - 06.30 hour (now Wintertime).

Bud,

It was good to work you again on 40 meters, albeit briefly on  your way out. Thanks for staying long enough to say hi. You and Tim were both doing very well into central NY and I could hear Steve fine as well. I will be checking out 40 on a more regular basis in the evenings. Hopefully we get to chat again soon.

I had a successful weekend on 40 meters AM (mostly in the evening) having made contact with several stations in PA, IL, and TX from Florida.  I was running ~25 watts via my 40 meter folded dipole up 29' and was coming in strong.  This was probably the most AM activity I have had on 40 in many years.

On which freq.?
Last week I heard early mornings (by me!) BC on 7295 and 7275.
And some times on 7285 a Chinees? BC station.

I have been hanging out on 7295, 7290, and 7275.  I am rock bound with my Lettine and HT-40 but use the NCX-3, which gives me some flexibility.  A homebrew VFO is on my to do list.  Late evening on 40 meters has been interesting and exciting when I get someone returning my CQ at 2:00 A.M. EST!
