Re: KC3EF Portable Operation in Delaware

I was on 20 meters during the day on Aug 1 1830Z to 2100Z from FM28 at Bethany Beach at the Delaware Army National Guard training base.  I made 4 contacts in FL, GA and CA.  I was hearing a lot of stations but not getting out to many.  I worked my FT857 off a solar charged LiFePO4 battery to a 20mtr lightweight dipole hoisted up my 16ft Buddipole mast. Used my Galaxy 7 Edge phone bluetoothed to a lightweight keyboard hooked through a Wolphilink adapter cable.  Pictures available if interested.  This has turned into my portable station for working from picnic tables and mountain tops.

Are either of you still on from Delaware in the evenings or did I miss the window?  I've been hunting a 40m DE contact for months now.
