Wow...last night on 40m I heard KC7XH way in the background on 7040,
mixed in with the QRM and all the QRN. I was running my NC40A with
straight key and an almost dead battery. Output looked to be about
Anyway, I called back to him and he sent QRZ? a couple of times....so
I sent UP 2 UP 2 a few times and he sent back QSL.
So up we went, and had a great QSO. He was in Helena MT and I am in
central Indiana. Looks like maybe 1200 MPW off the attic dipole and
almost dead battery. He said the NC40A was doing FB and had a good
solid 459 signal.
Once again I am reminded of how nice a rig this NC40A is.
I have my straight key ready and looking forward to tonight after a
gallon of white russians, some homemade cherry wine, couple of rolling
rocks, pork roast, kraut, and perhaps a few White Castles.
72 everyone and have a safe and happy new year!!
