FD 94 in Phoenix

---------

From: Mark E Gustoff (Mark_E_Gustoff@ccm.ch.intel.com)
Date: Mon Jun 27 1994 - 16:14:11 EDT


CALL : WO7T

ENTRY CLASS : 1E - Solar/Battery

SECTION / LOCATION : Tempe, Arizona
                     In air conditioned shack.
                     Like I was going out to a local mountain or park to
                     sit in the hot sun (116 F on Saturday) :)

RIG : Index Labs QRP+

ANTENNA : 5 ele. Log-Periodic

POWER SOURCE : Marine Battery / 5 W Solar Panel

TOTAL ON-AIR OPERATION TIME : 5 hours or so. Saturday the bands were great, but
                              I had work duties that occupied about 7 hours on
                              Saturday.
                              
                              Sunday I was free of obligations, but the band was
                              pretty crappy. Checked WWV and sure enough K-index
                              had taken a major jump. Oh well!

                 TOTAL SCORE = 240 points

COMMENTS :
Next weekend I should be up in the cool pines partaking in my belated FD
effort. 7,000 ft. up the daytime temps should stay around 85F. Will toss
a wire into a pine tree, and operate OHR 20M QRP rig on and off. Hope to
run across a few fellow QRPers this weekend. I listened this last weekend
but did not hear any of the internetters. 73 - Mark.
