Yep, and TY!

Hadn't logged it since September.  Spent about a half hour sitting on 332 the other nite waiting for BG to hopefully pop up, and got a real good long look at PH.  Very strong at times.

AZ 371 has been missing now for a cupla weeks, as has RYV in WI.  This has left a door wide open for YK in Yakima which has become a much easier catch.

PH went off second week of October...
thought it was gone for good this time
but it came back (again).

Tried for the beacon on 371, got a "K" then a "Y" way down in the mud
but no positive ID, will keep trying.

Good propagation to the South this morning.
Heard the following in FL:

326  PKZ   Pensacola
332  FIS    Key West
344  JA     Jacksonville

Missing was 257  SQT  Melbourne...   have not heard this one since
last Spring.  Should have heard it today given the good propagation.
Suspect it may have gone dark. 
Anyone log it lately ?
