Re: Park activation

WB9DLC - Mike Barrell <wb9dlc@...>

Yes!  It was a lot of fun.  We found a great site at the Oubache (Wabash) State Park in NE Indiana and had perfect weather.

Terry - N9ZI operated on 15 & 17 meters with his TenTec Argonaut V and his MFJ BigStick antenna.  He worked all DX stations.

Bill - K3HZP used his IC703+ on 20 meters using a 65 ft. wire held up with a 32 ft fiberglass mast.  He had a mix of domestic and DX contacts.

I used my PFR3 and my homebrew BuddiStick ( ) to operate on 40 meters.  Most contacts near 7030 and 7040.  I did CQ on 7122 a couple times with no replies.

I haven't compiled the logs yet but probably about 30 QSO's total.

We plan on doing this again at least once before winter.  Maybe we can do a weekend so that we can work some of the poor working stiffs.   :-)
