Cataraqui Centre Mall. This has allowed me to walk and climb stairs and get into shape for the "season", and it's amazing just how many people are in that mall each day just walking.
Anyway, yesterday I decided that the weather is becoming far too nice to walk indoors and it's about time I switched things up and hit the K&P Trail, part of the "Rails to Trails" program.
Of course the real reason I'm exploring this trail is to find some new QRP portable operating locations. So far it's been a bust, but there is a lot more to walk before I give up. It was a fantastic walk today, lots of birds singing in the trees, the Trilliums are starting to bloom along the trail edges, and lots of Garter snakes out sunning on the path as well.
Take today, guess who popped in and called me??? Yes, the Big Bobster himself, VA3QV, with a screaming 5 watts coming from his Flex-1500. I gave Bob a 55-57 into Kingston and Tony, VE3DWI, up in Debarats also gave him the same signal report. Not too shabby for 5w at that time of day.
All in all, a good day......and I got to chat with Bob!
