Re: Fox Hunt #1

Hello all. Thanks to Bob for doing a good job being a
fox last night. I have an HW-8 that I found a flea market
a couple of years ago and thought I would try it out for the
fox hunt. However, the SW broadcast swamped the receiver -
so, I unplugged my qro rig (old Johnson Navigator - 25w out),
and plugged it into the HW-8. To transmit I have to switch
the Navigator into xmit so the antenna will switch properly.
Now I can use my old SX-117 to receive and the HW-8 to xmit.
Good thing I put RIT in the HW-8 recently, otherwise I would
have heard the HW-8 when receiving! Anyway, I called N2IPY
and we almost made contact. About a half hour later, we
exchanged minimals. Right after signing, naturally, his
signal jumped up a couple of S units to about S6. Then he
disappeared. First contact made with this qrp rig. Feels good.

Thanks to all and looking forward to more qrp.
