No oinks or squeels heard in the 20m. barnyard, but a few grunts worked on 40m. The 80m. barnyard had a herd-o-piggies oinkin' away, but it got weak in the last 1/2 hr. Rig: IC-7000 at 5w. into G5RV up 25 ft. w/ old German Junker WWII key.

WB0CFF, CARL R GANSEN, 5W     fpqso=16 fpdxqso=0 nonfpqso=0 spc=13 total=624
80M was good (10 QSOs). 40M was fair (6 QSOs). Thanks to everyone. It was a fun event. 72/73 Carl

WB9HFK, Mark, 5W     fpqso=15 fpdxqso=0 nonfpqso=1 spc=12 total=552
80M only. Thanks for all the Q's. 72, Mark WB9HFK

All my QSOs on 40M - strange propagation. I try to give good RSTs, passing out lots of 339, 459s, etc., but getting 579s in return. Must have been a Flyin' Pig ion cloud or something over NM. And, sorry for very rough copy with KB1M with that RTTY Klingon station suddenly on top of us. But got business done after 3-4 repeats. Still, had fun.

Nice signals al around this evening. Many moons since my last 00. Always fun thanks to all.. Tom WA4ZOF

N5JPX, Jim, 5w     fpqso=6 fpdxqso=0 nonfpqso=0 spc=5 total=90
Another fun event with conditions better than I anticipated. The QSB could be brutal but several very nice signals tonight. I was pleased to work stations from Maine to New Mexico. Running my KX3 to a 80 meter loop antenna. The keying was managed by my 1947 Vibroplex Original Deluxe. Thanks for the contacts and Happy Thanksgiving. Hope to see you all in December. 72, Jim

K2KGJ, Jules, 5 watts     fpqso=5 fpdxqso=0 nonfpqso=1 spc=4 total=64
Started on 20 at 2130 local but nothing heard. Dropped to 40 for one contact with the rest on 80. Heard a 7 on 160 but didn't get full call ... too much QRN due to precip static from a snow shower. Glad I remembered in time this month. 73, Jules K2KGJ

n0rz, Charles, 5 watts     fpqso=4 fpdxqso=0 nonfpqso=2 spc=4 total=56
I used my Argonaut 5 and made 5 contacts on 40, and one on 80. I tried 20 meters but no answer. It is always fun. 73

KB1M, Walt, 5W     fpqso=4 fpdxqso=0 nonfpqso=0 spc=4 total=48
Even with a Faraday cage hovering over QTH, made 4 QSO's on 40, a fun evening in the barnyard. 72/73 Walt

AK3X , Peter, 3W     fpqso=4 fpdxqso=0 nonfpqso=0 spc=4 total=48
80 meters only using MFJ9200 at 3 Watts (voltage buck to 10.8 volts). 80 meters was good, wish I had more time. 72 and OO.

AK3X, Peter, 4 W     fpqso=4 fpdxqso=0 nonfpqso=0 spc=4 total=48
40 meters was dead here, so went to 80 and had four contacts. Band was noisy, and my time was limited. Rig was my MFJ9200 at 4 watts to an OCF doublet (low).72 and OO, Peter

N1DN, Phil, 5     fpqso=2 fpdxqso=0 nonfpqso=0 spc=2 total=12
My first RFTB in a long time. Nice signals on 80 meters, appreciate the contacts. Looking forward to the next one.

Bands got real quiet Sunday as the day continued. Didnt hear any signals on 20 or 40 mtrs during the RTFB. Spoke with AL7FS, Jim while it was taking place over the phone, he wasnt hearing anything as well. We even tried to work each other via ground wave, didnt work out either. There's a couple mountains between us ( now that I think about it, the hams in Anchorage are probably thankful for that, they cant hear me constantly calling CQ on a dead band LoL ! ) 73 to all " oink oink "
