Tried to work Bob-VA3QV this afternoon on 40m but the propagation Gods were against us......again. Even with all the filters on and the headset on, the best I could do was to give Bob a 43 signal report.
Bob was at a park between the Ottawa airport and the Rideau River, and as usual was operating QRP with FT-817, and I "think" he was using his long wire antenna.
I guess we'll just have to keep trying until we manage a QSO between us!
Bob has posted a good account of his activity. Have a look at: http://va3qv.wordpress.com/2012/04/06/friday-in-the-parks/
