160 For the Valentine Sprint


 

I see Stan is going to throw up his 160 mtr leg on his make shift antenna so I'll try 160 around 03:00z if anyone wants to give it a try however if it's lightning I can't use my 160 antenna.

I'll be lucky if I get 80 meters to work!  Hi HI.    And of course there is an RTTY contest today too.   Lots of signals on our little part of the band.

Tnx John for setting a time to gather on 160m. Worked you and Darin, then Terry, KZ4KX and Mary, KC4TIE in KY with a FB signal down here.

Latest weather radar shows I'll be between red storm masses a bit after midnight. Will be smart enough to disconnect the antenna before then, I hope.

The storm offshore has caused lots of QRN, nearly blocking out the waterfall at times. Surprising to make any QSOs.

Who has more fun than a Ham??

Sorry I missed you all on 160m.
I went there a few times and called CQ, but nothing.
Having pretty good luck on 40m and 80m so far.

Trying to find a signal in the QRN was like trying to find the road in a blizzard.  Did get Stan, Mary and Darin.  Saw a few more but they probably couldn't see me.  The storm off shore had the strongest signal.
