Also, take a look in the extreme upper right corner of this page in your browser, while here in the 10/11 meter board :-)

Someone should turn this back on. Looks like the last one is from April

Not sure how it's been for Chris, but the propagation's been really bad for me. I've left the radio on 27700 kHz USB at least a dozen different days, but I haven't gotten any legible images in a few months

Yeah, as Andrew said, reception has been extremely poor lately, so I turned it off. I may turn it back on again in the fall, when 11m propagation usually picks up.

BTW, I left the radio/decoder on 27700 kHz all day yesterday and didn't receive anything
