|NM5S was on Midland Hill W0/SP-117|
First up was N7BBH (fun call to listen to on CW) - I heard Steve tuning up on 14.060 just as I turned the rig on, and then he started calling CQ. The QSB was very deep, after several repeats we finally pulled off a nice QSO - he was on the edge of my ability to copy at the speed he was sending.
Next up was WS0TA (I think it was WG0AT at the key) - this is a club call working from a SOTA peak. I was never able to copy the peak he was on. I worked him at 17:35 on 14.061, so if anyone knows the peak designation let me know! He was a 579 and he gave me a 229.
Then I found NM5S - Alan was doing SOTA on W0/SP-117. He gave me a 559 and I did the same.
Not including WS0TA contact, I am now at 24 points towards my Shack Sloth certificate!
The bands overall were pretty dead today. The 7 region was the strongest today - nothing really heard from the east coast. Nothing heard on 17 meters at all - which was disappointing after my first DX score last week!
