The Leaves Are Gone
There are only a few oak and beech leaves left on the trees. Judy
walked to Shute Hill and I worked a few stations in the ARRL
We walked into Will Ellis's small south field and I set up under an
oak tree. There were still some
leaves at the top. At ground level there was a beech tree with
yellow-orange leaves. It was nice to see
I used the KX3 with a 30 foot wire as a vertical with a 9:1 unun.
The ARRL Sweepstakes was
in full swing and I worked 7 stations in less than 15 minutes.
Here's my log... I've changed the
format a little to show just the essentials:

It was only 45F and pretty breezy. I wore some fingerless mitts
that Judy knit for me. We can
expect snow in a couple of weeks.
