Guys, you can laugh about it, but for me there is no such thing like waking up and switching on radios. Once, I was used to do that very early, at dawn (which in my area, is a true nature gift, as shown in the picture along this post). Nowadays, it's a bit later, but it's always in time to see if propagation is there, sharp like I try to be. Many times you end up with just the usual signals, or even less. Other mornings, instead, you can be surprised. And it's that being surprised every time like it was firt one that shows you're (yet) on the right path. When you'll see as "standard" what you're hearing, it will be time to change hobby. Since I'm still on a nice ground (at least, one that means something to me), here is what made my day this morning. On the receiver inside home, the R71 with the "Mini-Whip", AFN Key West was so strong on 7811 kHz, that I could go outside with my Degen DE1106 and find it, at 05.01 UTC (the clock on the receiver is still to be adjusted!), with a fine signal. Defeneatly, a morning bugle call (with a nice 20 degrees Celsius temperature, to reach over 30° during the day). And I was glad to be there!
