The bands are jumping !

It is sooooo nice to see both 10 and 15 Meters jumping today for the ARRL DX Contest.  It seems like such a long time since I have made a bunch o' contacts on 10 Meters in one day.  The signals are nice and strong and the Big Gun DXers seem to be not having too much trouble pulling out my 5 Watt signal.  Thanks for your good ears and big antennas, guys!

It's a shame that after tomorrow that those bands will go back to being a habitat for tumbleweeds.  Hopefully the sun will start cooking the ionosphere to the point where this becomes normal for a while. 

We can hope, can't we?

Good evening Larry, I too am very pleased how 20 meters is treating me with 3 watts in the contest.
