I had a very enjoyable one hour session on 40 m today. Nothing special, mainly stations around Europe, most of them absolutely romping in and giving me a superfine report as well. Managed to work 3V8 down in Tunisia, he was a very strong signal which is always a pleasure since I'm only using a simple dipole.

20 m was very slow going although I did talk to Ralph in the states, he's always a very good signal, I think he's starting to remember me now, although he did remind me again that that he once met Henry Ford and that he's also been to the UK, nice old chap who obviously loves his radio.

Unfortunately I have had a problem with a troll on the QRZ forum, this particular individual is a rather arrogant character and seems bent on criticising the way I write. Anyway, I suppose I shouldn't feed him, he'll just keep coming back with sarcastic comments.
