Post-Tropical Andrea

The rain guage this morning shows 3.20 inchest over 24 hours for a storm total of 3.47 inches thanks to Andrea.  While the 5am map shows the storm right over Long Island this morning, the rain has stopped and there's even a little blue in the sky.

I'm becoming a fan of 30 meters these days.  "30 Meters is always open somewhere".  Last night using PSK31 oround 10.140 MHz  I called CQ and got a reply from Mike ZP5YW from Paraguay....a new DXCC entity for me!  I then moved down to 30 meter CW and had a nice chat with Jim K4KOR in Tennessee.  We found out our paths have crossed between New England and the Deep South over the years.  Paraguay and Tenneessee in the same breath was pretty neat.
