The MUF actually got high enough that I made a contact on 15 meters - to South America even! Idk if all hams know about this site but it tells you the highest frequency likely to produce ionospheric propagation at 3000km. Very helpful for seeing which bands are "open"

Banner weekend for #ham stuff. Worked several new states on HF towards Worked All States, made my first PSK31 contact on 20m, and worked my first station on an FM satellite!
Successfully set up my Othernet (https://othernet.is) receiver today! Pulled down satellite radio, weather, news, and a few Wikipedia articles. Pretty cool!
