Yeah it was a total bummer playing the anthem repeatedly and there was crickets on HFU. I logged into chat to see what was heard and it was slim pickings for ops able to copy. Assistant Stavin says its not the sun, its all the gov't chemtrails absorbing signals to make propagation impossible.  He also says the Earth is flat, and that Nibiru (planet x) is coming to destroy the world in Sept too so I'm not sure I believe him. Looks like ill be spending way too much money on beer and hookers for entertainment while there's no propagation. :(
