Hi, Keith here in Amherst, NYMy travels today took me 30 miles southeast of here to Wyoming County up in amongst the big wind farm there. Elevation was about 1700' ASL and the grid square is FN02tr in Sheldon, NY.
On the mobile between 1430Z and 1600Z on 16 July I copied the following: 28.2155 KD5CKP 28.2255 W2DLL 28.2318 N1FSX 28.2332 N2UHC 28.2432 W5BUB 28.2630 N5YEY 28.2691 W3HHW2DLL was about 5 miles from me, POUNDING in needles to say. The only other signal that was strong was W5BUB, Bub was running a 579 and I copied the beacon most of the way back home from the hill.
Everything else, including the AM Freebanders was S-2 or lower. Not a great day, but the band WAS open. Can't go wrong there... 73, Keith, WB2VUO Amherst, NY: Grid FN02ox ____________________ The HFbeacons mailing list information: http://www.freelists.org/webpage/hfbeacons
