WB4OMM – Wow! I think the sunspots are back! Ran the full 4hours, never left the radio! Started on 20M and was very successful so I stayed there. Very good signals. Checked 40M after 3 hours, heard and worked one station – (AK4JA) and went back to 20M after hearing nothing for 15 minutes. Worked 7 more stations! Elecraft K1 running 5W to a HB 124 foot End Fed Wire with HB 9:1 Balun. Worked from the Shack this year, many parks closed/restricted, and though it would be better staying home. Had an absolute blast! Thanks to all that worked me, and apologies to the few that I just couldn’t pull out of the noise. Looking forward to going back out in the field next year. 72/73 to all, Steve WB4OMM.
