Chatted last night at 7.050 with KB4UCT, who was in Cumberland Tenn.
in a tent, with an MFJ and a dipole up 15 ft.
I was p;easantly surprised. He 589 with 5 watts. I worked him at 5
watts from my end.
He and a friend are on a motorcycle trip to Arizona over the next
He has a sched. every night at 8 PM eastern with a KB4VJI, and invited
me to join them tonight.
In case I don't catch him with his little dipole, and since he
cordially invited me to jump into his sked., I thought the rest of the
group might want to look for him.
His first name is Ernie. I haven't taken the time to look up his last
name and home QTH yet.
Look for him (and me) at about 7.050 every night for a while at 8 PM
eastern. (I suppose that time will change as he moves west.)
Had a great time for at least 45 minutes with him. I guess once it
gets dark there isn't much else to do in your tent but chat with your
friends in the ether if you're a radio nut.
