This Weekend In RadioSport | Lucky 7QP

RadioSport USA | 7th Call Area QSO Party.
The party includes seven states and a whole lot of ham radio fun through the weekend. This event is one of my favorites because it is regional and low power friendly while Cycle 24 figures itself out. Has anyone noticed the astonishing decline in sunspot numbers? Perhaps it is part and parcel or is Cycle 24 completely different, whatever the case, it is an amazing scientific phenomena.

I plan on deploying my vertical tomorrow morning after walking Radio Dawg. She really needs a little exercise afterward fire up the radio and go for ionospheric fun. I’ll focus on the high bands 20, 15, and 10m while sending Morse Code straight off the paddles. It’s been awhile and CQ WPX CW is around the corner.

Rules (link).

SFI = 79 | A-index = 3 | K-index = 1 | Sunspot count is 0 @2111UTC.
