DX from the Blueberry Field
Judy went blueberry picking this afternoon in Ashland, New
Hampshire. I went along. She picked blueberries;
I worked Russia, Germany, Greece, Denmark and Arizona!
I operated from this beautiful field right next to the
I tossed a 30 foot wire over a maple branch and sat down on the
grass with the KX3. What a perfect way to
spend an hour. Here's my log:

All the DX contacts were quick exchanges, but the last QSO with Glen
NN6T in Kingman,
Arizona was the most fun. Glen and I actually had a QSO, and I
promised to send him a photo
of my operating position. He sent, "UR QRP is doing very good." That
was a relief because the
bands seemed a bit shaky today.
Judy picked nine quarts of the most luscious blueberries I ever
tasted. I had a great time making
a few QSOs. Nice combination.
