Antenna was the 88′ EDZ – rig was the K3 – power out was 500 mW.

No QSOs, but interesting to see where I was heard via the Reverse Beacon Network.

    Hi Larry,

    Funny coincidence, I saw your call come up on the RBN so I went to 80 hoping I could hear you. Unfortunately, I couldn’t or I would have called. Must be you were flying right over Albany…maybe next time.
