It's nice having your problem, Colin. I'm glad that I'm not the only one
looking skyward with a bewildered look on his face ;-) Walt

Iâve covered 1/2 a report... with way more stuff to go... am standing in my back yard looking bewildered wondering how to get a quick N Flag in the air - with back yard sky full of wire...
The sun is sinking low and Iâm bogged down lacking inspiration...
todays a municipal election... voted...
Yard work... done...

Iâd record spectrum but Iâd have no time to review the files. Currently itâs live or nothing.

Maybe a Wellbrook ALA100....

Hmmmmmmmmm.....

Thanks for the very detailed TP-DXing report, Colin (which I'm sure took a serious amount of time and effort).

On hot-propagation days like yesterday and today, the essential question is how much time do you devote to a detailed TP-DXing report (that does justice to the exceptional conditions) without neglecting other important duties as a well-connected member of the human race?

Thank goodness for live DXing, where you only receive one frequency at a time.

Nice descriptions Colin. You put your finger on a big (but
pleasant) problem in that a number of channels these mornings are a
jumble. If there was time enough, one could perhaps park on 864 for
example, and see what turns up, almost like a graveyard channel. But
even with an SDR, there's not enough hours in the day.

Another issue is that even on a channel like 594, JOAK can suddenly
take a dive, and who knows what might then turn up. At most times
of the year, it might just be be noise and splatter, but right now....?

Using a old school notebook approach to things today (by request) - my
YouTube video channel needs to some fine tuning; better audio and
continuity for starters.
