40m opens up tonight

Propagation on has been pretty bad the last few days. Not much luck on 10m during the day. Today even 20m was slow. Started looking at 40m about an hour after sunset and the lower part of the band started to come alive. I like that DX starts to show up in the Extra part of the band. Ended up working three DX stations and two stateside contacts including a nice ragchew with a station in north Texas. One station tonight eluded me…from Peru. The pileup was moderate but some rude operators showed up on the calling frequency with the typical hijinks…whistling, talking over calling stations and such.
