Hi all -here's the summary:

tot q's: 20m = 27 x 2 =54
         40m = 14 =14
          ======= ===
               41 68 x 60 = 4080
BEE q's 20

Heard KL7, VE6, VE7, DL4, W6, XE1, on 20m.

Heat index well over 106, decided not to climb Mt Beacon. Biked/hiked to
site on base slope overlooking the scenic Hudson. Surface temp. of rock
unbelievable. Only some leaf shade available. (Drank over 2 qt. lemonade
-didn't pee once.) Antenna: 66' dipole @ 45'. Rigs: DSW-20 @ 1.2W;
SWL-40+ @
2.2W. powered by 12V. Makita drill battery. Heat slowed ant. set-up so
got
late start. Also affected my brain as I must have called CQ 25% of the
time
-with the RIT on on my new DSW rig and never heard replies. Apologies to
those who tried. It was a great experience, but I now know I'd rather
freeze
than roast. Looking forward to more of these.
