That pretty much describes the state of the bands this afternoon. I took a break from yard work this weekend for some R & R time, hoping to get some radio in this afternoon. I got plenty of time behind the key; but not much to show for it.
I worked W7L, a lighthouse station and HA9RT. W7L is in
North Carolina Arizona (thanks, Hans BX2ABT), according to QRZ, and I finally got in the log after much trying. Hungary? First try and a 579 report – go figure!
Another nice story with some beautiful pictures was posted by Jim W1PID today. He went up to Knox Mountain with his friend Hans, late Saturday afternoon. Detail here:

QRP – When you care to send the very least!
You do have to actually -read- the QRZ.com page, Larry, not only look at the address: the location for W7L is Phoenix Arizona. I heard them several times, even on 40 here in Taiwan, but too lazy to work them through the mini-pile up from Japan.
Thank you Hans, guilty as charged. Getting careless in my dotage, I guess! 😉
