Waterfall is empty here. Not even showing the rain I can hear on the roof.

I am please to report that (a) I read the email in time to do something about it, (b) my radio was working, (c) I was working, (d) and I found Tom and we had a great QSO. 

What a thrill to talk to Buckingham Airfield. Thank you Tom very much for setting the special event station up. You made my day, and that was before I had my coffee.

Oh, Tom mentioned that I was the second uBITX radio type to contact him, so the Team uBITX is out and about, I'm pleased to report. Go 10 watts go! hahah.

Also, I got some screen gabs of w4lx on the water fall. I have no way to reduce RF gain, beyond turning down the volume (yea, a simple radio!). But this was a hot signal into Northern Virginia.

Hello “Group,”

 

I will be on 20 and possibly 40, for the next two mid-days as W4LX, to participate in the Buckingham Airfield Special Event.

 

Approximately 50,000 bomber gunners were trained at Buckingham Army Airfield during WW2.  They flew mostly in B-17 Flying Fortresses and B-24 Liberators.

 

Please drop by and visit when you see me on the waterfall in PSK-31. Thanks.  There is a Certificate available for a completed QSO.

 

Blessings and 73s,
