Appreciate the info. Might take a bit before I'm actually doing HF, but it's definitely a direction I want to go in. Emergency comms is one area that I'm really interested in. I joined the local club the night I tested. They talked a little about how emergency readiness activity and coordination here has kind of fallen away and there was some interest in getting back into it more from the HAM side. I am up for that.

Thanks again for the NVIS suggestion. Will research it more.
