First Warm Day at Potter Place
Dave K1SWL and I met for lunch today in Andover. Then we
went to Potter Place and operated in front of the old Railroad
Station for a couple of hours. Between us we worked a couple
of dozen stations.
It was a gorgeous day and nearly 70F. But there were still patches
of snow on the ground. No matter...
we tossed a line into a nearby maple tree and sat down at a picnic
table to operate with the KX3. We
worked France and Germany. We worked several stations in the SKCC
weekend sprint and some
more stations in the Georgia QSO party.

Dave and I passed the key back and forth. We worked many of the same
stations and had no problem making QSOs for an hour or so. Here's my

Both Dave and I had gotten out a couple of times this month,
but it was the first
really warm day and the first time we had operated together since
last fall. What
a fantastic way to begin a new season.
