Looks like working Washington state as K6JSS/7 is going to be an effort. John K7HV is on; but he's 449 at best when the QSB dies down. I've been calling for the better part of an hour now and he's not hearing me. I can hear him working other East coast stations; but it appears my signal is being trounced by other QRPers.
On the other hand, John K4BAI answered my CQ on 20 Meters and he was the loudest I have ever heard him. He was a good 579 here in NJ and I got a 579 back from him. And I also had a short QSO with Terry WA0ITP. So it was nice meeting two old friends on the air.
As I finish typing this, I just finished an attempted QSO with K6JSS/7. But I am not sure that John got my info right. I will consider this a bust and will try again another night.
