Ended up spending more time on this event than first envisioned. Did only CW, managing 1,252 QSOs. 40m was the “money band”. My attempts to “open-up” 10 & 15 m were ineffective as the numbers show.
Had a good turn-out for this evening’s 75m SSB net. Check-ins included:
- K8SYH Bill
- W5ODJ John
- KE4S Dave
- N4CF Mike
- KG4UPR/m Brian
- W4PMP Chris
- K3WD Bill
- W0MPM John
- N3NL Al
- K0ZR Jeff (NCS)
Most of the discussion during the net centered around the upcoming Field Day weekend and people’s plans for operation. A large percentage of the check-ins plan to do some operating during the event which commences this Saturday at 1 PM EDT.
Signals were just average this evening; all stations were Q5 or better.
Only KE4S migrated to ten meters for further conversation.
Hope all is well with all our members (as well as others…..)
Jeff, K0ZR, NCS this week
John, W5ODJ, thanks for sharing your thoughts on Field Days past. Yes, we certainly “did it big” and many of us have “big memories” of those times now in the history books. It was truly inspiring to see people, some whom you had not seen in some time, “show up” and we would together put all those antennas and radios on the air. It was certainly something to be proud of and feel good about. I do hope sometime again in the future those “fires of RF enthusiasm” can be rekindled and we do it again.
Thursday, April 30th, was a great net on 75m. Conditions were very favorable with nice low levels of noise. Those checking in included:
N4PD, KE4S, KG4UPR/m Delaware, W5ODJ, K8SYH, K9JRK (Joe of Columbus OH), KJ4VTH, and K3WD
Discussion about favorable conditions and upcoming operating events this weekend, i.e. 4 QSO party type events and a 10-10 contest on CW. Also updates on N4PD’s tower as well as progress being made by KE4S in getting his Steppir back on his tower and fully functional.
The 75m session closed near 8:30 pm and the 10m session ended at 8:40 PM.
W5ODJ and N4PD checked in on 28.405
K0ZR, Jeff, NCS for this week
Good net was enjoyed by those who checked in Thursday evening. Check ins included:
Multiple threads of discussion included participation in the just completed ARRL SSB contest last weekend, CWTs of late, and some antenna comments.
Only stations on 10m included myself and N4PD.
Nets concluded at 0040.
