On my nightly 160 schedule and notice the CW portion of the band going crazy. What a beautiful view. Dont even need to turn up the volume to know what is going on.

FT8 is at 1840. I don't think the pile got that high up last night.

I love the Flex and Pan for that very reason!

While I do play in contests I rarely have the time to do a full one.  But when one is going on it is a sight to see!

I managed to get 30CL I think on either 40 or 20m.  I'd have to check.  It was a trip looking at all those signals 1-5 kc up.  I used the pan to my advantage and found a little vacant spot.  Took me 3 calls and got a call right back!

Sorry to say this but the Knob Guys really have a disadvantage!

I worked them on 160 around 0150z last night. Took a bit longer as I had to make dinner and put the kids to bed... 

Had one op also in NNJ but lower down use my station remotely to work him later. He said it was like night and day difference up here. :) Sounded like 20 meters up here...

Wow.  I need to get my 160 'L' back up.  But I am working on my last 12 DXCC countries on 80 at the moment.

I haven't been able to break any of the 3C0L pileups with only 100 Watts during the limited times I have been able to be in the shack these past couple of weeks.

Sounds like the generators on Annobon aren’t too healthy. They lost 2 trx already
