    Mike, It’s been a while since I’ve been on here. Is the Time and Frequency still the same?  I’d like to try making a contact. It’s been about 6 years since I was on the ice.

    Bob, For the last few years we’ve been at the bottom of the solar cycle and propagation hasn’t been too good down south. Also the antenna is a little worse for wear. When down there I would oftentimes go to the shack and give it try, but week after week of no contacts sort of killed my regularity. I should be back again in October. Usually I would be on the air on Sunday afternoon. The band would open up around 3 or so which is something like 6pm on Saturday night Pacific time. (I forgot to look what time zone you are in so you can figure it out for yourself.
    Write back in October and I’ll make a time for a sked.
