And it is not too early to start thinking about your participation in the next PODXS 070 Event. Check your long-wire or make a plan for a temporary stealth antenna if your HOA seems to be dead set against any wires outside.
This is a great opportunity to put some 160m Q’s in the log for the Top Band Endorsement.
