Reaching N.A. from IO81/82 has proven harder than I thought, with Peter, VO1ONE, my only success. The Malvern Hills have proven to be quite an impediment for reaching the horizon :-) I went south of Ledbury yesterday to the grid border, but still could not hear the birds until they were too high for America. That said, it was nice to hear and work some familiar voices I have not heard since AO-10/40 days, including Ib, OZ1MY, and Jussi, OH5LK. I will take today off, unless the rain forces me off the golf course, but still plan to work IO72 tomorrow from the beach: AO-27 at 1435z and SO-50 at 1618z.
