Thanks for the feedback Dave and UB.
RX was pretty strong, over 50% on the smeter. And from his feeback we were both hearing eachother fairly broken up.
UB...GREAT to know! I live below Harper Lake at the base of that hill (same street as your pal Sean with the blue J**p) so it makes perfect sense regarding the propagation issue. On the way into work this morning, I picked up the "friendship net" (??) on 447.575. listened to folks from Winnipeg, Portland, TX, Calgary...they were coming in VERY strong. (I just need an external speaker for when I'm rolling so I can hear the QSO
Is there a meeting tonight? if so, I'll jump back on 146.460 for the drive from Lodo to the meeting for another test.
