Hey, It looks good. What happened to you on the 10m Net?

Tom, I hope you see this. For years I had a noise level of S9 or better and you were only an S3. So it was hard to heard you and most of the stations. AEP was suppose to have trees cut down back in 1998. They would say next 3 years. I would call them back. They would say next 3 years. So HF is out most of the time and even 2 meter some times. So Too much QRN was and is the problem. This whole area is like that. Just using a B&W folded dipole for HF.
