A warm Day in Swain's Field
Today was something extraordinary. It was 55F and sunny. Not a day
to stay inside...
Judy and I hiked up the range road into Swain's field. I worked Nova
Bulgaria, Hungary, France and Tennessee.
The view south toward the Belknap Mountains
I tossed a line over a maple tree at the north edge of the field and
set up the KX3.
Sitting in the warm sun I went to 20 meters where the Bulgarian DX
was in full swing. Picking off stations was easy. I started at
14.035 and went
down. Here's the log.

After this, I packed up and headed east farther along the range
took a quick snapshot.
After a ways, we turned south into an adjoining field.
From here we walked down into the sunny field below and then farther
a corn field and a quiet glen. Continuing west we came out on the
range road and
walked back to the waiting car. I will treasure this day when
January comes and
temperatures have dipped well below zero and the snow is waist high.
