40m Propagation Tonight....SSN:25 SFI:83 A:5 K:0

Started out tonight at about 6PM EST. I was amazed at the signal reports I saw on the Reverse Beacon Network.  What an incredible tool! 

RBN - Evening 02-21-2017

The first one I got tonight was Randy W9RDB up in Madison WI.  We traded 599's and SKCC numbers. He was running about 50w into an end fed wire from his FT-950.  Sounded great here!  He used to have a set of Drake rigs but said the receiver was currently not operating.  Too bad, that is some fantastic vintage gear.  I'm going to keep at it for another hour...no RIT, almost no filtering, and NO QSK can make your head spin at times.
