Your Call:

K4BAI, John, 5W     fpqso=20 fpdxqso=0 nonfpqso=6 spc=21 total=1386
20M: One QSO with KE7KUS in NM. No other signals heard. 40M was in good shape with QSOs out to OR, CA, and NH and as close in as FL, VA, and MS. 80M was pretty good with QSO with IL and I heard Tom, KA2KGP calling AB9CA, but never heard him CQ and he didn't answer my CQs. A good Run for the Bacon, but it could be better with more participation. 73/72, John K4BAI.

ab9ca, Dave, 5w     fpqso=16 fpdxqso=0 nonfpqso=4 spc=19 total=988
Moderate activity. Noise on 40 and 80 was pretty bad. Rig was FT 857 at 5w to 100 foot of wire. 2 on 20, 15 on 40, 3 on 80. WB9HFK managed to get through the noise on 80, IL to AL. He and KB1M were the only 2-banders. Still a good evening. Always enjoy these. Thanks to everyone at stopped by. Hope to see everyone, plus others, next month. 73 de dave, ab9ca/4

k4wy, Jack, 5     fpqso=19 fpdxqso=0 nonfpqso=1 spc=16 total=928
K4WY 5 Watts FT-817 and a loop. Some big oinks from K4BAI, AB9CA, WB9HFK, N5GW. Longest oink from N0RZ. Thanks to all and see you in the wallow next month. 72

WB9HFK, Mark, 5W     fpqso=14 fpdxqso=0 nonfpqso=2 spc=13 total=572
Fun as always. 80M a bit noisy here in IL. 72, Mark WB9HFK

N5GW, Gene, 5W     fpqso=14 fpdxqso=0 nonfpqso=0 spc=9 total=378
KX3 to CFZ in front of TV during football game. 20M was pretty dead but was able to work KB1M & KE7KUS. Most Q's were on 40M which was noisy - only two Q's on 80M which ain't in winter shape yet. Two banders with KB1M, KE7KUS, K4BAI, & WB9HFK

KF7WNS, Gary, 5W     fpqso=9 fpdxqso=0 nonfpqso=2 spc=9 total=261
20m was disappointing tonight, but did better than usual on 40m. Sorry to KA2KGP and KI8FV for having such a hard time getting your calls. Between QSB and QRN, it was a real challenge. 72 to all

n0rz, Charles Hollar, 5 watts     fpqso=5 fpdxqso=0 nonfpqso=3 spc=8 total=144
This is the my first run for the bacon in several months. I was on 40 meters for 40 minutes and had fun dispite the noise. until next time 73

KB1M, Walt, 5W     fpqso=8 fpdxqso=0 nonfpqso=0 spc=6 total=144
Fun night as always working other porkers, thanks for the QSO's. 72/73, Walt

K3RLL, Don, 5w     fpqso=6 fpdxqso=0 nonfpqso=0 spc=5 total=90
Pretty quiet barnyard on the "back 40" this evening, except for the digital QRM that magically goes away at 0200z. Thanks for the contacts. Big signal tonight here into rural PA was K4BAI who always has a good signal whether I'm in PA or FL. 72/73 oo

AK3X, Peter, 5W     fpqso=6 fpdxqso=0 nonfpqso=0 spc=5 total=90
30 minutes and 40 meters only. MFJ9200 at 5W to inv vee. Some QSB but mostly good sigs. 72 and OO Peter

KE7KUS, Kurt, 5W     fpqso=5 fpdxqso=0 nonfpqso=0 spc=4 total=60
FT-817 + low-band dipole. 20m was nice for the first 30 mins, then tried 40/80...much noise. Gave up after 1 hour. 2x w/ N5GW and KF7WNS on 20m was best sig. Tnx all and see you next time! 72 de KE7KUS

wa4zof, Tom, 5W     fpqso=4 fpdxqso=0 nonfpqso=1 spc=4 total=52

K2DEP, Steve, 5W     fpqso=3 fpdxqso=0 nonfpqso=0 spc=3 total=27
Not very good here in the Eastern shore of MD. Tried to catch some contacts with my recently built mightymite with a band filter. Putting out about 400mw on 40M but did not have any luck. See you all another time. 72

KA2KGP, Tom, 5     fpqso=3 fpdxqso=0 nonfpqso=0 spc=3 total=27
A nasty nite for this RFTB. Piggy propagation was poor across all bands here in the WNY barnyard. Only a few oinkers heard, and even less actually worked squeelin' thru the mud. Rig: IC-7000 at 5w. into dipole up 25 ft. 73 all.

K3JZD, Jody, 5w     fpqso=3 fpdxqso=0 nonfpqso=0 spc=2 total=18
They said it would. And sure enough, right in the middle of a big event, my Windows 10 computer decided to reboot and do updates. It would not give up - it did multiple reboots. Kind of puts you out of business whenever you are running a Softrock RXTX SDR. Plus I had a real high noise level on 40m. So only a few contacts for me this month. (The sun is not treating us real well right now). Jody-K3JZD

KI8FV , Steve , 5w     fpqso=2 fpdxqso=0 nonfpqso=0 spc=2 total=12
Its a rough night. Got 2 one Al and one Or but rough copy.

N8BB, Werner, 5w     fpqso=2 fpdxqso=0 nonfpqso=0 spc=2 total=12
More noise than signals. Had fun for a bit but be nice to have more activity.

NS3C, Richard Hall, 5 Watts     fpqso=1 fpdxqso=0 nonfpqso=0 spc=1 total=3

VA3NU, Larry, 5w     fpqso=1 fpdxqso=0 nonfpqso=0 spc=1 total=3
Band conditions were really bad here tonite. Managed to squeak out one contact. Heard John, K4BAI at ESP level but not enough to make a contact.

n5mzx, Everett Catlin, 4 watts     fpqso=0 fpdxqso=0 nonfpqso=0 spc=0 total=0
I did not hear much on 7.122. Rig was Bayou Jumper and G5RV junior. My first foray into Run for the Bacon. My FP No.1192 I will work harder next time. 72
