Well, going back to the salt mine after 1:00an local proved to be a waste of time. Conditions had not improved to areas in the Western US/Canada….or to anywhere else.
Actually, the QRN was lower, and the 8′s and 9′s were louder, as well as stations from AL, GA and FL. There just were not enough callers to justify Butt-In-Chair.
Set the clock for a couple of hours with the hope of getting the early risers….NOT. Slept right through the alarm, so Saturday morning was lost.
