Saturday night
« on: April 12, 2014, 07:05:40 PM »
10m isn't doing so well.  I'm on 14.330 if anyone is around.  I can tune everything but 160 if someone would rather choose a different frequency.

Geez it sounds like crap all across the bands.  S5-S6 of static everywhere.

Yeah, I got on around 2:00 and there wasn't crap on the air.  All I got was a guy doing the Georgia QSO Party.  Might try later on tonight.

Special event station K7A had taken 14.330. So I made a contact and will try and find another frequency.

I'm on a trip and I don't have a portable HF rig so all I can do tonight is echolink.

I'm in the middle of nowhere picking up my wife and stepson. His Jeep died so I'm away from my qth right now.

Geez, another night lost to something less fun than ham radio. I know some nights I've not been able to get on and some nights we've not been able to make contact despite trying, but I'm going to keep on. I'll always post when I'm on and what frequency I'm on. If you need me to stop posting so much, just let me know.

I'm with you!  Let's keep trying.  I'd really like to set up some semi-regular contacts just in case.

I'd like the same thing. If I can keep kids from wanting to go to the park and Jeeps from dying, I should be good to go.

Is anybody up to trying to QSO tonight? I can do 15-80 meters but we must keep it in the General band limits.
