Band conditions were pretty good here in the eastern US this morning and even into the afternoon. FM broadcast was hot; I was hearing all kinds of distant stations in the car. I was hearing stations on 2m simplex from Kentucky, VHF-high public safety from all over the place, and I worked the W8MOP repeater in Bluefield, WV, about 315 miles from my QTH using nothing but 50 watts from my FT-2600 into a Cushcraft ARX-2B at about 30 feet AGL. Not too bad.
