Elecraft CW Net Announcement

Good Evening,

    I took advantage of the current break in the rain to hike along the
less muddy areas of my newly thinned forest.  Lots of firewood for me to
collect and a lot more sky.  When I got to a lower area on the NW corner
I heard running water.  The intermittent stream was flowing.  A number
of new ponds and a few small waterfalls.  Come springtime there will be
a competition between the normally rare mosquitoes and the more common
frogs. Hopefully the frogs will get fat and breed like crazy.  Not as
many tracks as I had hoped but it has been raining around an inch a day
or more so tracks don't last long.  I did find a few elk prints and more
from deer.  I am not used to being able to see so far.  It is much
easier to see the rolling topography.  In a few years the trees should
recognize their new environment and grow like crazy.

   A new sunspot popped up today.  Its polarity shows it is from cycle
24.  The solar flux index remains stuck in the low 70s.  It has been a
very long time since it has gotten higher than 73.  The auroral oval
also shows light solar wind activity.  The QSB should be about the same
as last week.  Hopefully I won't have to dodge CQs tomorrow.  But be
ready to move net frequency to lessen interference.  It is tough to run
the net when I cannot hear anyone and they can't hear me over the QRM.

Please join us tomorrow on:

14050 kHz at 2200z Sunday  (2 PM PST Sunday)
  7047 kHz at 0000z Monday  (4 PM PST Sunday)

Seal up the ship-boy's eyes, and rock his brains
In cradle of the rude imperious surge,
And in the visitation of the winds,
Who take the ruffian billows by the top,
Curling their monstrous heads, and hanging them
With deafing clamour in the slippery clouds,
That with the hurly death itself awakes?

Canst thou, O partial sleep, give thy repose
To the wet sea-boy in an hour so rude;
And in the calmest and most stillest night,
With all appliances and means to boot,
Deny it to a king?
