ARRL DX Phone Contest this weekend 3/6 - 3/7/2021.

Well, this is one way to find out on whether the upper HF bands are jammin', or not,    http://www.arrl.org/arrl-dx?fbclid=IwAR0xHumMWuNdREFrf2Fa7OIxhO7CslPC0ET4774YtAiUtOnBZ1aLBz2Av7g
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 buial that will satify 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.

As pinto said, 15 was pretty good both days, some kind of pipeline to South America was happening here. I wonder what it was like on the East Coast.
