The first few days were discouraging with the QRM, band cops and lids. Maybe things are beginning to settle down. I picked up two bands and two modes - 17m phone and 20m RTTY. I will try for 80m CW tomorrow. For those of you on the east coast - propagation into the Carolinas is best between 22 UTC and 2 UTC across the bands. For the low bands - it is best between 0 UTC and 2 UTC - Good Luck!!! Bonus - FT4TA logs are now in LOTW and I did not have to send $2 by Paypal. Free - wow almost makes the lids and band cops worth it.
