I just looked at the lightning storm map.  Very little T-storm activity.  If 
things stay quiet, and it's supposed to be near record cold here for the 
next couple of days, I plan to get on 75 and maybe 160.

I called CQ on 3710 last night (Wed evening/Thurs morning) and had a 
30-minute QSO with a ricebox on AM, his first time to try out the mode.  No 
other AM breakers, but his 40 watts handled the QRN pretty well until he 
started to fade out at the end.  Then heard some of  the regulars up on 3880 
or '85 from the northeast full quieting into here,  but by then I was too 
tired to go outside and re-set the external antenna tuner at the base of the 
tower, so I just  listened for a while.
