Missouri from the Pemi
June 2016

Judy and I took a quick bike ride along the Pemigewasset River this
afternoon. I made a QSO with Missouri while Judy continued riding.

I tossed a 29 foot wire over a pine branch and set up the KX3 on 20 meters. The
band was dead. But one station was quite strong... KE0JMZ, Ray from Missouri,
was calling CQ. We exchanged 579s and chatted for a while. He was amazed
that I was on a bike ride and operating outdoors. "Wow," he sent. "Very cool
and GUD CPY."

Judy returned before I finished the QSO and took a couple of nice photos. It's always exciting for
me to get outdoors in such a beautiful place, enjoy nature, get some exercise, and  make a few
contacts at the same time. Who could ask for more?
