Last night, around mid night 40m band became incredibly quiet.
I could wrkd wid K6ZB, Bruce.
I've heard his sigs several times before but my system could not receive his sigs strong enough for chatting.
My QTH, Machida-city, is so-called a "bedroom-town" located about 30km south of central Tokyo.
My favorite 40m band is always very noisy here compared with those in country side.
Since I put up a 2-elemement HB9CV antenna 2 years ago, my sigs has become well reached in west coast area but unfortunately My ear hsn't become better enough to enjoy chatting.
