seems like 40 meters this past week has been hot.

two nights ago, for the first time in over a month, i fired up the
K5FO Special on 40 (the only band it'll work on).

heard a W6 calling CQ around 7040 and he was 599, so what the hey.
also, he was doing 40wpm. he gave me 539 (stingy S-meter) :-)

no QRM, so he asked me if i could crank it up. of course. so at 70wpm
we carried on for a while. he had me clear but i heard an amtor from
europe (my guess) just above the noise level.

the W6 was running 1KW and i was at 0.95W. i'll be on tonite.

i have spent some time (the reason why the low level of activity with
this group) entering 30+ years of awards data for the QRP ARCI into
a PC computer. :-) had to do it to make sure that it was set for

congrats to Jeff Gold on his highly visible article in the Feb QST.
Jeff obviously has too much time on his hands. :-) ;-)

more to follow. the vacation is over.
