Guess it's my turn again.

Worked a guy in the next town over on 10 cw this afternoon. I think he parks on 28.050 and calls CQ over and over while watching TV because I've worked him before on this freq. His 25 watts @ ~ 25 miles away sounded good, 579. Band was open but not -wide- open. Also heard PY1, NP3, W1, W3, and two beacons from Mexico a XE1 and a XE2.

28.179 XE2AT C AGUASCALIENTES,AGS CP # 5W, VERTICAL new 22 Aug 08

28.183 XE1RCS C MEXICO CITY, MEXICO # 5W, VERTICAL New 8/08/08

Also heard some RTTY about 28,085 and a few guys on SSB but not many. LOTS OF FREE BANDERS.

Tuned across 15 meters and heard a lot of northern Europeans with a nice polar flutter. Very cool.

QRN from thunderstorms is finally down. Hopefully for good as fall approaches.
