DX from East Andover Bike
This afternoon my wife and I took a quick bike ride along the old
Northern Rail route in East Andover. I worked Spain,
Paraguay, Italy, Poland, the Netherlands, and Luxembourg
in 20 minutes of operating.
A mile or so down the trail is an old picnic table under a couple of
pine trees... it's a perfect spot for some quick operating. I heaved
line up about 40 feet and pulled up a wire. I set up the KX3 and
opened the notebook. I started on 17 meters.
There were lots of strong stations and I logged three
in a row. Then I switched to 20 meters where the
WAE contest was going on. I worked three more
and packed up to continue the ride. Here's the log.

It was such a beautiful afternoon with warm sunshine filtering
through the trees as we rode along. These glorious summer
days are growing precious as August advances toward
September. May this weather last...
