I just noticed the Idaho QSO Party is this weekend. That dramatically increases my chances of getting them in my log and one step closer to Worked All States.
So Saturday, after I hit the Charlotte Hamfest and sit in on a couple interesting forums — one on Summits on the Air and another on Software Defined Radio — I’ll speed back home and try to make some contacts. Fortunately, they are two time zones behind us!
Looking forward to decent propagation and catching someone with a good ear operating a directional antenna pointed southeast, hopefully on the 20 meter band… hehe.
I have some coin in hand from a freelance gig or two and I’m wondering what I can spend it on in Charlotte. I really don’t need anything, but if a W4RT dual filter board for the 817 surfaced I’d certainly snag it.
