June Bike Ride to the Pemi
I rode my bicycle down along the Pemigewasset River again today.
I worked the Normandy coast (France), Brazil and Texas.
The old road runs about a mile and a half north to a bridge that
Hill Village. There's nothing left now but the stone abutments. I
the KX3 with a 28 foot vertical wire not far from there.
I sat down in the grass and tuned across 17 meters. I heard
in Normandy calling CQ and answered. We exchanged quick 599s and
I moved to 15 meters. PV8ADI in Brazil was very strong and we
a quick exchange. Then I heard Dave NA5CW in Texas finishing up
He answered and gave me a 459. He was a strong 599. After a couple
of minutes chatting he
said my signal had picked up to 559 and he was copying all. I
promised to send him some photos.
I packed up and rode the bike back south to the car.
