Hi, Keith here in Amherst, NY

Took a tune around the band from 0030Z to 0200Z/ 29 April

Some F2 and E-Skip, mixed mode here.  Heard the following:

28.1658  XE2NS
28.1710  XE1FAS
28.1930  LU2ERC
28.2000  LU4AA
28.2000  W6WX

28.2085  NB7A
28.2255  W2DLL
28.2495  K8NDB
28.2500  K6FRC/B2
28.2790  WA6MHZ

28.2869  WI6J
28.2879  WA7LNW
28.3000  K6FRC/B

No sign of the other SoCal beacons, missed a couple of the XE's and a lot of the LU's and PY's. It's better than months & months of "Nothing Heard (Again)" though...

There's quiet WX in the forecast, I will try to get the portable vertical dipole together and test it out in the field. It should be a noticeable improvement over the mobile whip and I may be able to multi-band it also. It's a thought...
