First let me say... YEAH, YESSS, WHOO HOOO, yep I made it into the net. So what you say, well the conditions were less than good, less than average actually, let me explain:
I'm at work and my morning break coincides with the net start time. So, when I got to work this morning I set everything up, ready for an 8 am attempt. The break bell rang and I went into action, switched on, listened and there was WQ5RP, KK5IB made it in ahead of me so I hung on (time was getting short) and on the second go I made it in, whoo hoo !!!. Oh, did I mention it was from my car with a "Firestick" type antenna on the roof and the FT817 on the passenger seat. The antenna is fed via an Elecraft T1 (best auto tuner I've ever met) so at 5 watts into this less than efficient set-up I garnered a 559 from net control. Thank you. Kinda made my morning (even my boss noticed my improved demeanor!)

The Lord bless you and keep you
The Lord make His face shine upon you, and be gracious unto you
The Lord lift up his contenance upon you and give you peace.
