Note, contacts may be made on 160/75/40/20/15/10 Metres. Last weekend 10 metres was open between about 1800 and 2200Z. Most contacts were along the west coast of the U.S. but I don't have a directional antenna, and I was running my usual "Mighty 5 Watts" to an antenna "proven to be somewhat better than a dummy load buried 6' underground" so with any "reasonable" beam and 100 watts, things could be different.
I'll be puttering around with my "Mighty 5 watts" so if you're within striking distance, particularly on 160 and 75 metres, you might run into my call.
