Really nice show tonight!  Running the gamut from blues to classical to blues rock--enjoyable eclectic mix as I fed the dogs and made my dinner--with a glass of wine..  Thanks for the suggestion!

Signal is building some now as we move toward twilight in NW WA.  Some QSB and a few deep fades.  S7 on the lazy-H and s9+20 on a longer dipole.  I hope some of you are catching it.

I know you're trying out the am thing BOR but I do miss your ssb shows...can't quite copy the am shows. Please do a ssb show every so often so we can enjoy some west coast flavor out here.
