Band conditions seems to be fair today on 20m. First, I was listening on 14060, but there was nothing going on, called a few times CQ. So I went to the SSB portion of the band with my FT817. The noise floor was SØ. Huh? I do have most of the time a noise floor of S7-9 on 20m. Something wrong with the antenna or receiver? I heard 7x2RD calling CQ on 14.210 MHz. So I called him, and oh boy, he came back for me. No other stations for him at that moment. One of those surprises we come across.
Yesterday I worked T77C with CW on 30 m. I worked Tony before on 40m (Dec. 30, 2012)
