If you remember, I broke my laptop. It is being fixed as I type and with any luck I will have it back on Friday. So I am logging my K1 contacts here so I can catch them all up when I get the computer back. It's been raining like no tomorrow here...Monday was 2 inches of snow, today it was 3 inches of rain, and tonight we get a tornado or two...more snow tomorrow maybe...gotta love springtime in the Midwest.
This is the K1 log from today. I did manage to work one new state for 2018 today, between thunderstorms.
21:52Z - 04/03/2018 - Karl out in Montrose PA, we have worked each other before and he had a great signal today. I gave him a 599 and he sent me a 559 from my K1 at 4w to the attic dipole. We were on 7056 Khz in the 40m band. Karl is SKCC 17635T and is always a pleasure to work. Off at 22:02Z
22:20Z - 04/03/2018 - James KB1KKW from out in Massachusetts. James is a new state for me this year and that now makes 21 with 29 to go. Band conditions were rough, he gave ,e a 599 with QSB and QRN I gave him the same. We were on 7054 Khz in the 40m band and he is not a SKCC member, so we did not trade numbers. He lives in Chicopee MA which is in Hampden County.
22:27Z - 04/03/2018 - Roy K8NQQ from down in Wilmington NC. Roy is an SKCC member and we traded numbers. He is SKCC 912. I gave him a 589 and he gave me a 559. Great to put Roy in the log on 7055 Khz!
22:32Z - 04/03/2018 Phil K4JVK from down in GA. Phil is SKCC 5562 and he gave me a 589 and I sent him the same. QSB and QRN was getting a little worse at this point. This was on 7055 Khx in the 40m band. Phil was running a Kenwood TS 570D to a low dipole up about 12 feet! Thanks for the contact Phil.
22:43Z - 04/03/2018 Last but not least was Tom AI0F from out in Missouri. Tom is a SKCC member and his number is 201S. He's a Senator in SKCC which means, as you know, he's worked billions of SKCC members. He's an Extra from Adair County. I gave Tom a 589 and he sent me a 559. Thanks for the QSO Tom!
That about wraps it up for tonight...more thunderstorms moving in, possible tornadoes too. I am so ready for summertime. Not a bad log for 4 watts.
