Storm News from Larry W2LJ

I monitored a QSO between W2LJ and W1JSB this evening. Then I had a QSO with Larry myself. He has been out of power in South Plainfield, NJ since Monday night around 8:00 pm. He is using his KX3 at 5 watts on 3560 with a doublet. He says his antennas all survived the storm. The power came back on briefly Wednesday but went out again and has been off ever since. He’s OK but says the house is getting chilly. I hope to work him again tomorrow evening. 73 Jim W1PID
