SSB Radio Check Today
The Pacific Cup boats Valis and California Girl setup a radio check network today. While I was able to talk to Valis, a couple miles away off Angel Island, I could not make out California Girl in Oregon. I did hear other boats outside the Gate and in Richmond. Blue Moon called, presumably from Sausalito, but I could only hear half of the conversation.
This always make me wonder if it is one of our radios or just the propagation. I have never talked to a boat on the SSB that is so close.
Thanks to Valis (WDB2898) for setting this up.
