Sporadic E on 10M last night!
« on: April 29, 2019, 1657 UTC »
           Nice QSO to Fayetteville and Tommyville, AR on 28.420USB at 03:15UTC, 4/29/2019 from WV. Signals peaked to S7. I 1st heard it on 11M CB CH 38LSB and the Superbowl CH 6 going nuts. Hey, I'll take it, with the lower bands crammed with lightning crashes. Both were about 100W coming back to me, and I was around 62W going back. I'm now using a 10M Ringo tuned to 1:1 VSWR at 28.400MHz. 
I was asked, yet another weird question, of how I would like to be buried, when I finally bite the big one. The answer was actually pretty easy. Face-down, like a certain historical figure in the late 1980's, (I will not mention who, but some of you will get it, and that's enough.) Why??? It would be a burial that will satisfy everyone: (1) My enemies will say that it will show me where to go. (2) On the same point, I can have my enemies kiss my butt. (3) It will temporarily give someone a place to park a bicycle. See??? A WIN / WIN for everyone.

I had similar conditions one night a couple of months back. In my case the path was from my QTH in Florida to Texas, Oklahoma and Arkansas.
