More piggy oinks & squeels heard from the WNY barnyard this Bacon Run. Even 20m. was open the first hour. 40 & 80 were OK here too. Rig: IC-7000 at 5w. into a G5RV up 25 ft. w/ a straight key pig caller. 72 to all us pigs.

Glad to hear so many piggies on the air tonight. Started out on 20 meters and made a few quick contacts before the band gave out. 40 meters was busy with SST stations but found some cracks and worked a few stations. One non piggie said he was running 700 watts. Felt bad for him and didn't mention I was QRP. Thanks to K9QEW, N5GW, K9NUD, K4OAQ, KA2KGP, K2CWM, K4WY, N1BIV and AA2MX. Heard K0LAR with a good signal for 2 watts but could not raise him.

A LOT of competition for some room to call CQ FP. Virginia QSO Party plus the SST plus a European RTTY contest made for a rough wallow. KA2KGP and AA2YO were the strongest signals from this corner of the barnyard. I was on 40M for all contacts but hope to wander up to 10 meters for some QRP next month. 5 watts Penntek TR-35 to a dipole. 72 K4WY
