Fall at Knox Mountain
Judy and I hiked up to Knox Mountain this afternoon. It was a
walk. I worked Slovenia, Michigan, Cuba and Virginia.
It was a clear sunny day... about 50F. Not quite full color yet, but
We walked up the logging road and crunched through fallen leaves...
yellow, and brown.
I tossed a line over a wild cherry tree in front of the pond and sat
down on the
There wasn't much activity on 20 meters, so I started out on 30
with the KX3 and heard S57V, Milan in Slovenia. He gave me a 559.
On 40 meters I answered Curt KD8IFJ in Michigan. He said he had
very high QRN and he didn't copy me well at all.
I moved to 20 meters where Amed, CO2AME in Havana had a pretty good
pileup going. He answered me right away and we exchanged 599s. I
back to 40. N4ASF, Dave from Virginia was calling CQ and was very
to me. He gave me a 559 and we chatted quite a while before signing.
I hope I can get out often in the next few days. We had our first
night and I'd guess we have about another week of fall color.
