=======================================================================
An impressive first few days of August FM Es here.  It provided much   
QRM for the debut of nearby KBEJ-2 near Fredericksburg!  144-MHz was   
reached Aug 3 1850-1925 into GA and NC & Aug 4 very brief OH c. 0930.  
With the Narco Omnigator out of service several ILS/VOR catches were   
likely missed on those two dates as well.                              

   73, Pat - WA5IYX
