Spring time in New Hampshire.
Jim W1PID was at it again today:
Prepare yourself for some beautiful photos as well as a good story.
On a side note, some of you may have noticed that I removed the “Capcha Code” from the blog comments area. I did that in response to a couple of you out there that were having difficulties posting comments. It’s a good thing that comments are on moderation and that Blogger has a good spam detection process. Since removing the Code, I have been averaging about 15 – 20 spam comments a day! Don’t people have better things to do?
Today was more like the end of April than the beginning of March. Around lunchtime, the high was 68F (20C). We really shouldn’t be seeing temps like this for another 4 to 6 weeks; but you know what? I’ll take it any day. Unfortunately, tomorrow is supposed to be more seasonable with highs only in the upper 40s (8C or so).
Tonight is the 40 Meters QRP Foxhunt. I managed to get both Foxes Tuesday night in the 80 Meter hunt. I worked Lee AA4GA quite easily; but was having a devil of a time with Ray KX9E in Illinois. Turns out I had the K2 set to 1 Watt. When I bumped it up to 5, Ray was able to hear me a bit more easily. I had forgotten that I had set it to 1 Watt over last weekend, and forgot to reset it. That means I worked AA4GA in Georgia with only 1 Watt as it turns out. Cool!

QRP – When you care to send the very least!
Agree the capcha can be a pain. A suggestion I saw on an astronomy site. They had a picture of an easy to identify constellation (orion) and you had to enter the name. Maybe do the same thing here e.g.”what king of antenna is this” with a picture of a yagi.
