Date   

Brutus Bash 2021

KK0S
 

Well – as of 10 am on Sunday, 40 meters hasn’t been productive for this years Bash.

I sure hope the ribs and baked goods have been as advertised.  Wish I were there.  Maybe for 2022.

 

Saturday – not a peep on 40 heard throughout the day and into the evening.  I did hear from the Cuban jammer but I don’t think they are doing QSL cards.

Sunday – up til 10 am -  Alabama, Tennessee, and Texas.   Brutus?  No.

 

Here’s hoping a good time was had by all.

Bruce – KKØS

Dear Johnny,

    LOL...well there ya go.

    The idea of having an activation like that never occurred to me.

    There is a place a couple of hour away called Uranus, Missouri. They have fudge factory there that would make a good place to activate from.

    Another place I thought would be good is Plato, Missouri. It is he Mean Center of the US population wise (which is different than the geographical Center) is about 2.7 miles from there. I have not went out to see exactly where it is yet though. It is about an hour from me.

    Thanks.

Mmm Sounds good Walter.
The ribs are pre cooked, Pam is making tater salad and baked beans.

If we can’t make contacts we can eat!
