Hi all..today had an hour long QSO with John G3YPZ on 21.420 on AM..both of us running low power well under 100 watts..at times John was 20db over S9..although I cud not get on ystdy I'm aware he was there yakking with Tom W0TDH and others..fellas it's time to dust off that gear..sure this cud be just a random event but sometimes it can go on for a few days..and considering Tom is in NC it isn't just a New England opening...have fun ya all...73 de DAVE WB1EAD

Hello..another day another dollar..I wish..today no G3YPZ..however Aldo dropped by and said he cud hear John and Tom W0TDH yakking on 21.420..so we went to 410..he was 5/9 easy..I returned to 420 and later caught Mervyn GW8TBG calling..we yakked a bit and I went back to chores..Tom hooked up with Mervyn a few minutes later..still cud not hear Tom..

Dave,

I keep calling CQ and seeing a blip on the panadapter. Maybe that's you?
Frustrating to 'see' signals and yet not be able to demodulate them.
I'll continue calling CQ ... I see SSB signals and a glimmer of AM activity just above my noise level.

Hey Dan..that's great..can't be me ur seeing a "blip' on..however I was busy today but managed to snag CT1EHI..Marcos was 5/9 plus plus..gud audio never went below 10 over 9 here..only one though..but I had to scoot for errands..this was at 21.435 AM at 1727 UTC..I actually did hear Tom W0TDH on 21.430 yakking with someone a little bit later but he was barely S3 here..
                      That's the scoop from here in the NE one mile or so in from the Atlantic   73 de DAVE WB1EAD

I was listening to 9A7V (Eugen Calopa) in Croatia around noon yesterday. He was on 21.205 for quite a while. I was using a simple vertical and a Pierson KE-93 mobile receiver...

Hello der..not much from here lately since it's been very quiet..??..there is a bit of SSB chatter below..mostly J5T on 21.310 split..I did work WB5IRI Doug on Monday with a 5/9 strapping sig with ex modulation..on the back corner of Mr Mosely to boot..
I did hear someone very faint after say.."back to you Tom"..so I'm guessing W0TDH was busy below me in N Carolina.?.not much of a report but I did run into VE6CQ on SSB on 20mtrs..Rick is "chomping" on the bit to get back into AM..he and Glenn G8NOF were always there it seems when the band opened..including 10mtrs 29mhz..73 de DAVE WB1EAD
