10 meters opened up this afternoon, made a lot of South American contacts. 15m was good too. Hopefully tomorrow will bring more of this activity.

Worked stations in Central and Eastern Europe this afternoon on 20 meters and worked a few 15 meter stations in the Caribbean and South America. Not bad for 100 watts and a wire.

I was really busy this weekend and barely had any radio time. Manged to work a KP down in PR on 20m CW, which isn't much considering Im in FL. Also missed 2 good satellite passes. The bands didn't seem that great when I was listening.
