The usual crushing RTN signal into north Canada tonight. Modulation levels seem fine here. Heard shout-outs to listeners then into Ram Jam "Black Betty".
Always terrific to hear an old friend!

Even I have to admit that this doesn't have any of the signs of being instigated by the Bunneh bunch. There would have been emails trolling for info, online attacks from the sock puppet army, offers of friendship from other sock puppets so they can troll for info, and generally just childish pissing and moaning from someone with too much time and not enough love in their life. Because the station involved  was neither a relay service or one of the feared Canadians I would have to speculate that the op was just unlucky.

I have a Uniden (President) HR-2610, several Browning Golden Eagles, but my all time favorite is my 1976 Siltronix 1011D with original Shure 444D mic and digital freq counter. I worked the ARRL 10 Meter contest with it and received a lot of unsolicited comments on the outstanding transmit audio. They were surprised when I replied I was using a 35 year old tube set.

Nice signal into northern Canada tonight. Tuned in to hear a blues tune. About S-5 to S-7 on a fairly noisy band. Great to hear you again!

Nice copy here, was listening while working in the shop. Caught Billy Idol and The Fixx as well as comments on propagation and shout-outs to listeners. Terrific to hear you!

It will probably, but not certainly wipe out HF broadcasting. Last night I had good visual aurora and still had pretty good copy on Red Mercury Labs. Several times I had similar aurora conditions and could hear Blue Ocean and True North. Signal strength is lower and noisier with aurora but it can still happen.

Got Bluegrass music in, hearing an OM announcer but I can't ID yet. Lotsa band noise and fading. Still pretty early here.

I agree with JP. I used to give cards to anyone that wanted one; obviously if they wanted a full data, signed card they had to provide an accurate report. I mean, if all they want is a card it's easy enough to print one off from all of the ones posted on the web.

We had a great Northern Lights show last nite. Even with the poor HF conditions we could still hear RTN and BOR. Not as loud as usual but I was surprised to hear them at all.

Got him here with lower then usual signal but considering the solar storm going on I'm surprised to hear anything. ALWAYS GREAT TO HEAR AN OLD FRIEND!


Look at the second picture, the one with her feet on the desk. On the far right, in the middle, is my ham QSL card. I'm serious.

I'd comment on their dysfunction but after so long it's too easy.

Fair copy here with slightly muffled audio. Heard Britain Radio International ID with OM op reading mailbag type program and listings of europirates heard. Guessing it's a relay since this isn't a BRI freq.
