Re: Wed Nite Nets


Well, after 3.5 years of nearly weekly listening for the net (7.122mhz)  I was finally able to copy well enough to try to check in.  Semi-successful! But alas, I cheated.  Didn’t seem like Johnny was going to be able to pull me out of the muck at 5 watts so I maxed the K2 to a tad under 15w.  Kind of defeats the purpose of a QRP net, but I was desperate to finally check in.  This made my evening.  What I really need are better antennas (or antennae).


Made a qso with Wayne in the most recent Second Sunday Sprint, so maybe conditions were good enough I would have copied him well enough to check in had he been net control.

Thanks Johnny!

Back to the bench, Winter's too valuable to waste.
