I like WA2FZW's suggestion of a Sunday 3PM EST meeting time as well. Nothing says we can't do both an afternoon and evening
The 40m band was in miserable shape at 7:00 pm last night. I called CQ BITX on 7.277 Mhz off and on for about 40 minutes
and heard nothing. Tuning around the band, I could only a hear a couple of very weak stations and noise.
