Hey AB36, I am just getting started in HF comms. From what I understand you are just about in range for a NVIS set-up if able. TiminCA

I talk with a ham in your county using an EFHW antenna about 20 feet up on 80 meters so we are in range

This would be a good place to start, Saber 7 is on this net most days. Check out his posts on this forum. My FCC call sign is KM6VFF.
Happy to take on some of the net control duties for the North West, (NW). I’m in central Idaho and can work CA to AZ to MT to WA, (when the bands are good), thats a big chunk of the FUSA. I am on every morning at 0700, on 3.923.50 for a ARRL traffic net. I’d like to get the guys that were checking in on the AP Net earlier this year to start back. I had four AP Net stations that would check in from time to time.
