Portable Ops 9/45: Just 1 1/2 contacts today….dead battery
Friday was a bit frustrating – the bands seemed really weird, and not much if any activity was heard here in Kansas.
I did manage one and a half contacts!
N5NAA – On 30 meters I worked Steve down in TX for a 2xQRP contact. Steve was running 3 watts and even mentioned that he reads my blog! Hi Steve!
VE4CWF (10492T) – I replied to Chris calling CQ. He came back to me and gave me all his specifics, and then just as I completed sending our call signs back, my battery died in the KX3! I admit it, I had operated probably 3 portable sessions without charging the internal pack – my fault. So….sorry Chris for dropping you like a hot potato! Hopefully we can connect down the line.
Thats all for today, I hope to have some time this weekend for a bit of SKCC CW!
