Last night was my first attempt at the 40m Foxhunt--really enjoyed it and
worked the Fox as well. I made contact around 4:05 UTC with KA7ULD. He
gave me a signal report of 239 and his was 459 with heavy QSB. In fact, I
lost him before finishing the QSO. I was running about 3 watts from my Yaesu
FT-757GXII into an inverted vee up 23 feet with broadside orientation N/S.
I worked him again at 4:40 with my signal report being 349 and his 459. I
cranked the rig up to a whopping 5 watts. Here's a list of the others I
heard until I called it an evening around 5:30:
NA5K 349 4:27 UTC 7.120
KO6CL 339 4:50 UTC 7.117
VE6GK 349 5:08 UTC 7.041
AA7AR 349 5:25 UTC 7.041
I did notice that Mark's signal improved to a 559 at my shack around 5:30.
I tried a couple of times to answer KO6CL's CQs but was unsuccessful. It
was fun--look forward to next week.
73's es ADIOS!
