DX from the Railroad Station
Judy and I rode our bicycles from Andover to the old railroad
at Potter Place. It was a beautiful summer day. I worked Bulgaria,
Slovenia and North Carolina.
I tossed a 30 foot wire over a maple tree and sat down at a picnic
table. I was running the KX3
and started out on 20 meters. Conditions weren't great, but I made
contacts. A few signals were
really strong. LZ1WR was over S9 from Bulgaria. So was Wayne W4HG in
Oddly I worked a second Bulgarian station LZ304AE before trying out
30 meters. I made one
contact with Slovenia on 30 (S57V), but came back to 20 to finish up
with CT7AGM Walter in Portugal.
Getting out on a beautiful summer day is a real joy. We've got at
least another month of
summer before the cooler weather arrives. I'll try to make the most
