Yesterday, at this time, the bands were humming (relatively) with Skeeters, WES’ers, and WAE’ers, just to name a few. 24 hours later, during a later lunch break ……. not much of anything. This is where I was picked up by RBN:
The one QSO that I did have was with HA3NU on 15 Meters. Other than that single contact, I spent most of my time calling CQ on 20, 17 and 15 Meters, interested to see where my signal would be picked up. Not as productive a lunch time QRP break as I would have hoped for.

QRP – When you care to send the very least!
Larry – how do you convert the RBN spots to Google maps shown I your last blog ?

That’s a feature of the RBN website. When you go to their main page, up to the right is the “options” section. Here you can click on “show” and you’ll get all kinds of options to display, including the map.
