0132, faint signal, uncopyable tonight   :^(
Band conditions must be flaky, normally you're +15 or better here

This is also a late posting. Caught RFW in the MN north woods with a really great signal, 5-6 on the meter and sounding really good. Talking about Win 10 and playing some really good tunes. Signed off early due to poor propagation. Thanks Dickweed. :)
