Where does the time go...

One day it was April something and I was making QSO' thing I know it's June 3rd, and I have ZERO QSO's logged for May.  I have plenty of excuses.

May was very busy for us.  Lot's of family birthdays, lots of family cookouts, weekend trips to here and there, new challenges at work, I just didn't have time.

So I fired up the K2 this lazy Sunday afternoon and noticed the bands seemed a little weak but I still got a QSO in the log book.

I worked Lester W8BJO at about 19:06z, he's almost my neighbor since he lives in Springfield Ohio, a mere 120 miles due east of me.  He was 599 on 7030Khz when we started out, but within 5 minutes or so the QSB on my end was so bad I had to sign off with him.  He has a good fist and I was hoping for a bit of a rag chew...but not today it seems.

Springfield is a city of about 60,000 people, and was formed in 1801 by James Demint.  It is located in Clark County and is the home of Wittenburg University, and Clark Community College, and is the birthplace and former home of comedian Jonathan Winters.
