    Yes, I got it too. But this year the propagation is worse than last. There are many nearby stations on the 20-ty. Just over 300 QSO.

    That's cool. I was detecting last week and dug up a SO-239 to SO-239 connector. Always fun to find something you can use.

    I attempted to do a POTA activation on 6m FM ('cause I like tilting at RF windmills) partway through my afternoon run. My radio, RG174 coax, and EFHW antenna all fits in a hip pack along with my phone, water, and keys.

    No responses, but I did hear a somewhat faint signal sending CW right after I tuned into 52.525. I wasn't paying attention at first because I was busy self-spotting, so by the time I realized what was going on, it was down to the last character (which was a "5" btw). No clue what the sending station was since that's the FM Calling frequency and I've never heard CW on it before. I didn't hear it again after that.
