For a change of scenery I chose to activate the Frontenac Biosphere, VE-0023. There is a nice quiet spot, just off of the K&P walking trail, that I use north of town.
First in the log today was Stuart, M0TTQ, who was in a UK park. Then it was the turn of 20 US and Canadian stations up and down the east coast, and I finished with two more DX stations, EA1DHB, and IK4IDF. Not a bad day on the bands!
While there was a very amount of QSB today, the good thing is there was no deliberate QRM that has been plaguing many POTA operations lately.
I used my 20m and 40m hamsticks today, as well as the KX3 set at 10 watts.
Here's today's QSO map:
Todays mid-morning propagation was: SFI=107, SN=56, A Index=20, and the K Index was 2.
Whoever said "Life is too short for QRP" has obviously never operated QRP. It's an absolute thrill every time I have a SSB QSO with somebody across the pond. Tomorrow, I might take out my FT-817 and try it again with a screaming 5 watts.
Stay safe out there !!
