Made my usual 'hour or so' appearance. In this case, 1 hour 18 minutes late Sat evening. Condx seemed kinda odd. Had real trouble hearing the southern 4's. K4BAI was about 419 where he is usually barreling in, whereas some Eastern EU's and Russians were 579. Seemed to be a wall at the VA border and everything beyond that dropped waaaay off. Then again, I was only on for little more than an hour, so what do I know?!, hi ! A cluster search today revealed NB was well represented with VE9HF, VE9XX, VE9ML and VE9CB and a couple others all QRV so NB was on the map. The electric fence next door is especially brutal on this band. Even with the NBlanker on, spikes every 1.2 seconds are over S9. I am down to 1 antenna from the dual array, so cannot even 'beam away' from the fence to slightly lessen the repetitive torture.(now you know why I was only on for an hour) Was nice to say hey to lotsa friends and worked a couple new calls too. Single inverted L, with 2 raised radials. No RX antennas Rig: IC-7410, YCCC SO2R+ box, N3ZN ZN-9 paddle, Yamaha CM500 headset, N1MM+ logger CU (all of sudden) in the next one! dit dit -Mike VE9AA in NB
