Two quickies

I spent a while this evening chasing that same Namibia station from yesterday. I got on right before he started working split. I set up my rig for the split and called and called but just couldn’t get through.

There wasn’t much else going on down the dial until I ran into a station from Lithuania, LY5W, on 40 meters. I could barely copy his signal, probably a 55 at best here, but I tossed out my call and somehow he heard me on the third or fourth shot.

I had another 40-meter contact with an island station, VP5/W5CW. Easy in and out.

I didn’t have much time for anything else tonight. The whole evening was a washout — literally. I was already late getting home from work this afternoon, but I was determined to take my afternoon walk. About a mile in it started drizzling, then picked up to a soaking rain. The hike back home was a trek only fit for a frog.
