Wow. Had to check and see if my coax was plugged in. It's kinda quiet here. I did hear some chatter on 38 LSB around 6:15 am. Of course after typing this I hear voices. Still hitting send though.

Forgot to add. I did hear a VK accent around 6:30 am saying 'I hear you guys, but it's weak' on 38 LSB. Can't say for sure though. While chatting with someone in the states the other day on 11, they mentioned working an Australian station. I haven't done that on any band in a long time, but do remember doing it a lot on 11M around 1997/98. I want to think it's possible again.

Just heard Scotland on 38 LSB. Not a huge signal, but very readable. Let's see what happens.

17:33 Had a nice quick QSO with a #409 in Washington State on 27.365. Band is very up and down though.
