On 11/4/2012, channel 28, Sunday morning I ran this watergate hoping to get to a few guys in DX Land. 555 in the Big Horn make his presence for sure! He is actually is the one responsible for getting me the Varmint XL-250 tube amp used on the Cobra 2000 GTL. Then we have number 8 and 48 in Texas making my receive. Dead End Kid also from Texas, came in with the morning wave. I enjoyed the morning talking DX along with doing the laundry, empty the trash and jotting down what we need for when we do the shopping later, enjoy Bulldog 777.

Later on Country Girl & I were cruising the streets in central Maine to Subway for lunch then Walmart. Again we got to 555 and Red Baron in the Big Horn - Texas. Wow some awesome conditions here in central Maine. Thank you Mother Nature!

Bulldog, I have been trying to call you on 28 AM but I guess I haven't had conditions. I've made it to Nova Scotia a few timnes on LSB and can get to the west coast on a regular basis on AM but no Maine contacts yet on my base. I hope to catch you soon on 28 AM or maybe 26.915 AM. In the evenings I hang out on 14 AM and talk to my locals starting at around 8:30-9:30 PM CST and usually talk to around 12:00 AM or later.
