I worked CT, CT3, F, JA, Kh6, KL7, UA9 for non carib or SA contacts.  I missed much of the early Saturday night opening as I was gone.

I was very happy to log the JA and UA9!  Otherwise is was pretty poor.  80 and 40 were pretty lousy too.

Well on Friday night I couldn't hear one single American station . . . even
though I heard a couple of Southern Europe stations working a few.

Saturday night conditions were better, but signals were well down on what
they have been for the past few weeks.

However, in the 3 hours I spent on the band (at different times in the
night) I did manage to work 61 American stations . . . including a few in
Brazil and the Caribbean.

For future reference, here in Britain there are about 6 Navigation Beacons
between 1810 and 1818 kHz (they sound like the old Decca HiFix) . . . these
make copying weak signals VERY difficult, so a good idea to avoid this part
of the band !
