    Early check-in, noontime net.

    Bothered with zero beating today and I'm surprised just how far off the ole girl has gotten. Still under a hundred hertz on hf so far, that I can wwv to.

    Now I'm off to shoot the gap while the local traffic is off for the day. Looking for the second highest in the middle tree.

    Did some winterizing on my antenna. The 'wad' of stuff on the side of the antenna is a 9:1 and connections in a plastic baggie. 3 radials/counterpoise wires point N, S, E.

    Helically wound 35' of 18awg on a 20 ft Shakespeare Wonderpole. Simple, cheap, dependable, less than 3:1 SWR with 40m 1.2:1. 80m 4:1 and, while tunable, not much of a signal....

    But, stealthy and works well... Now, if I could only move a large hill from the southeast of my QTH...

    I worked JO1DZA on 40 meters. It was my first JA on 40.

    CWT last night. 47 Qs in less than an hour. Started on 40, moved down to 80. 80 was much more productive - 39 Qs in 40 minutes. All S&P

    Using the transportable QRP station on battery power with portable telescopic vertical as I usually do during my business travels.

    Tried calling MI5AFK in Ireland, but there's only so many stations in the pileup he could work before he signed off.

    Did get the W2W special event station in Maryland in my log on the very first call though.

    Guess we'll see what the afternoon brings.

    Yes, DFW area today. I often travel to meet with people. The portable QRP station I put together is my travel companion. :)
