Judy went blueberry picking this afternoon in Ashland, New Hampshire. I went along. She picked blueberries; I worked Russia, Germany, Greece, Denmark and Arizona!
I tossed a 30 foot wire over a maple branch and sat down on the grass with the KX3. What a perfect way to spend an hour. Here’s my log:
11 Aug-14 1954 14.020 RA/UY6IM CW 599 599 Russia
11 Aug-14 1957 14.032 DM200TSV CW 579 599 Germany
11 Aug-14 2002 18.071 SV2CQB CW 569 599 Greece
11 Aug-14 2008 18.075 OZ2TF CW 559 599 Denmark
11 Aug-14 2012 14.009 NN6T CW 569 599 AZ
All the DX contacts were quick exchanges, but the last QSO with Glen NN6T in Kingman, Arizona was the most fun. Glen and I actually had a QSO, and I promised to send him a photo of my operating position. He sent, “UR QRP is doing very good.” That was a relief because the bands seemed a bit shaky today.
Judy picked nine quarts of the most luscious blueberries I ever tasted. I had a great time making a few QSOs. Nice combination.
