I was just on, up on 3.885.  Never heard a peep below, but had a nice 
30min conversation with N8ULN/Jim in Wooster, OH.

Not bad propagation, either - his 100w 32V2 was, for the most part, Q-5 
here in South Texas.

I've heard reports that 15m was open, more than most people think.

I need to locate another screen resistor for the grid circuit in a 
Viking II.  If that's the same resistor that also sets the bias on the 
807's, I -might- have one.

If I can get the 'other' Viking II working (the one I'm NOT using as an 
RF exciter for the 250TH rig) then I can use it for checking out 40m, or 

Need to find my schematic, again...

Very true, Mike, that a lot of us are going to be around the house the 
rest of the weekend.  It'd be nice to hear some of those 'middle of the 
day' carrier surprises on 75m.

is like driving your car at night, without headlights. (K4KYV)
