No replies and no activity on 8oM then. The band was open as it is right now. I check CHU time signal at 3330 with a handheld portable. If I can hear it I know the band is open as it is about 170 miles east. I am going down to the shack now to fire up and try again. It is 11:26 my time. I would BTW be willing to op during your times to see if we could work.  So it should be 1726 there I am thinking if I remember correctly. Anyway here goes nothing.

I have been using the rig a bit. Even though the band is soft I have had a few contacts. don
