    OK - log is in. :) Only got to spend a few hours on it - but we'll see how it goes.

    Looks like ~ 450 logs so far as of 03 May 2021 1626 UTC !

    Good luck !

    Good call............;)

    All over now, but NEQP sounded like a pretty big success.

    I operated exactly one hour Saturday evening, 20 SSB only, and made 100 contacts in the various QSO Parties, but mostly they were NEQP contacts.

    Dave, K1ZZ blew my ears off. Geesh, what a signal...he peaked at a real reading of S9+40 dB. At least he did say, "Hi Steve." Some other very strong ones were AB1SU in VT, AF1T in NH, W1KDA in RI (at least when I worked them).

    7QP was also running, as were a couple of State QSO Parties, including Delaware (!) which seemed to have a few very active stations who I worked...so nobody should complain about "where's Delaware?" In the 7QP, N9RV in MT was also extremely strong, so nobody should complain about "where's Montana?":p

    Being relatively close to salt water and whatever liquid is in the Charles should help the signal. Get on VHF and up and use whatever is in the air near Logan as a reflector.

    ...I actually thought Southie was a legit dx zone already ;)

    I posted it already in the videos section, but if you guys are interested in how I really operated the NEQP, I have it on my blog km1ndy.com .
    (A hint that it's slightly more elaborate than an ht!)

    Hope you guys had fun too!

    That song is a classic!
    If that happens the North End will demand similar treatment but at least their food is much better

    If the guy on the other end says, "Handle here is Jimmy The Snake", you might want to pass on the QSL card.
    Just sayin'.
