Your Call:

K4BAI, JOHN, 5W     fpqso=9 fpdxqso=0 nonfpqso=4 spc=11 total=341
20M was dead at the start. 40M was so poor at the start that I wondered if I had gotten the date wrong. Checked out the rules and was on the right night. Very poor conditions on 40M. Heard NA5N working KF7WNS, but couldn't hear Gary. On 80M, conditions were good, but there was not much participation. Hope we can have more participation next month. Happy New Year to all. 73/72, John, K4BAI

KI4KZS, Brent, 5w     fpqso=5 fpdxqso=0 nonfpqso=4 spc=8 total=152
Another great run! Conditions were not the best. I made contacts on 40m and 80m. Worked KB1M, KA2KGP, K4BAI, W4KRN, and NA5N. Had four other exchanges during the sprint with non-members, one of who said they looked up the club and joined. See you all next time! 72/73 DE KI4KZS

NA5N, Paul, 5W     fpqso=4 fpdxqso=0 nonfpqso=1 spc=5 total=65
Conditions were so bad, even the internet/website was down! TNX Diz for fixing. I worked some K3Y SKCC stations earlier in the evening QRP, but when the Piggies started, the bands were nearly dead. On 40M managed to work KE9AJ, K4BAI, KF7WNS, KI4KZS and a W7 non-FP that answered my CQ. Heard WB9HFK well at times, but my signals obviously went elsewhere. Still fun as always. Used KX2 with vertical and TFD dipole. CU next month, hopefully.

KB9W, Dan, 5W     fpqso=4 fpdxqso=0 nonfpqso=0 spc=4 total=48
I only worked WB9HFK on 40 meters with a strong signal but could not find any others so went to 80 meters and found some activity KA2KGP, WB9HFK, & K4BAI. Heard a couple of other weak ones but just could not pull them out with the QSB. CU next month 72/73, Dan

W4KRN, Karen, 5w     fpqso=3 fpdxqso=0 nonfpqso=0 spc=3 total=27
Got on the air a bit late, only found 3 piggies K4BAI, KA2KGP, KI4KZS - all on 80m. No signals on 40m. Will try again next month. 72 <('oo')>

n0rz, Charles Hollar, 5     fpqso=2 fpdxqso=0 nonfpqso=1 spc=3 total=21
I had 2 40 meter qso's, wb9hfk in Il. and k7ca in Ut. and one 80 meter qso with k4bai in Ga. I heard wb9wbk on 80 meters but could not make enough noise for him to hear me. The rig is a ts590s at 5 watts the antennas are a butternut hfr or a 40 meter dipole. Tonight the vertical received better than the dipole. until next time 73 cw is fun Charles

K0LAR, Scott, 5     fpqso=2 fpdxqso=0 nonfpqso=0 spc=2 total=12
Worked WB9HFK on 40m and 80m for my only 2 contacts. OCF windom @ 20 ft into Yeasu FT-450. 72/73.

I worked the only two stations heard on 40 and ended the evening with a smile on my face, thanks Diz for your work keeping Flying Pigs running! 72/73, Walt

KF7WNS, Gary, 5W     fpqso=1 fpdxqso=0 nonfpqso=2 spc=2 total=10
Not many stations heard on 40 or 80. Paul/NA5N had a good signal on 40. WB9HFK always a strong signal on 80, but not able to hear me. Worked Hawaii on 40 no problem. 72
