    Tonight at 1900 PST I'll be on 40 meters. It won't be a true net, but if you're out there and have the abilities stop in and say hi. I'll call CQ for a little while and see how long the QSL lasts from there.

    7260 khz at 1900 PST or 0300 Zulu time.

    Its was very nice talking with you @jdp. After you signed off I had a good chat with a few other hams, not from the boards, and listened to a few more. It was a good night.

    @jdp mentioned that I should have given more notice. I'll try to be a little better it that next time!

    No takers this time, but I did have a couple of good QSO's.

    PSK31 was on fire tonight and made for some good QSO's as well.

    @jdp thank you for the rag chew.

    Anyone else out there trying to get through? Band conditions aren't all too good tonight. I'll try my other antenna for a while just in case.
