1 QSO on 20M, KF7WNS. 8 QSOs on 40M, 8 QSOs on 80M and 0 on 160M. Hello to Randy, AA9BD, with his shiny new FP number. I worked K0LAR, a fellow Minnesota FP. KA2KGP, K4BAI, W8ES and WB9HFK were my 2-banders. Thanks everybody

K3 at 5w to 100' wire. At least some activity on 20! Only one but that is better than it has been for a while. Even got a half dozen RBN spots - compared to none the past few runs. 8 on 40 and 6 on 80. Noise seemed to be high. Had to keep the gain low. Worked WB0CFF, K4BAI, AA9BD and KA2KGP on 40 and 80. Even managed KF7WNS, way out in OR, on 40. Condx much better than they have been being. Thanks for the Q's and hope to see everyone plus a few more next month. 73 de Dave ab9ca

It seems to me that the WA7BNM calendar is wrong about mults in RFTB. They are clearly counted per band, not just once. Very noisy tonight. 40M in good shape. Signals generally weak on 80M. Nothing heard and no answers to CQs on 160. Heard and called KA2KGP on 80, but he didn't hear me. See you all next month, hopefully with less QRM. Look for the Georgia QSO Party the second full weekend in April. 73/72, John.

K9PX, Jim, 5w     fpqso=12 fpdxqso=0 nonfpqso=4 spc=14 total=560
Nothing on 20m. 11 QSO's on 40m and 5 on 80m. Two banders with K4BAI and KA2KGP. 80m is starting to sound like summer. 72 Jim

KA2KGP, Tom, 5     fpqso=19 fpdxqso=0 nonfpqso=0 spc=9 total=513
Nice Bacon Run. The 20m. barnyard was closed, but 40 & 80 were useable until the last 1/2 hr, then no more squeels heard. Rig: ICOM IC-7000 at 5w. into G5RV ant. up 25 ft. 72 to all us piggies!

WB9HFK, Mark, 5W     fpqso=12 fpdxqso=0 nonfpqso=1 spc=12 total=444
Only an hour and 15 mins. QRN was a bit high on 80M. Loads of fun, and see everyone next time! Don, K3RLL, had a big signal on 40 to E. Central IL! 72, Mark WB9HFK oo

K3JZD, Jody, 5w     fpqso=11 fpdxqso=0 nonfpqso=0 spc=9 total=297
Nice event. 40m got a little noisy in my neck of the woods at times. Thanks to all. Jody - K3JZD

K3 to Nite-only Vertical: Nice activity this evening in the 'Front 40' with some good loud squeals and fairly steady band conditions. Thanks for the nice contacts and a big thanks to Diz and his entire staff for hosting this monthly gathering. 72/73 ... Don

20m was open and good spots to the East Coast. 40m was pretty busy. Only had an hour, but good fun. Thanks all.

I think this is right. 1st time though I have had the number for years. Doing research and found it was on and came in at half time. Was unprepared so this was an experiment. Maybe try again next month 72 Tim

I tried 40 meters and 80 meters. I didn't hear anyone on 40, but I heard AB9CA, WB0CFF, W8ES, and KA2KGP on 80. I had a wide filter and couldn't copy anyone reliably. I could pick out call signs, but I never copied an FP number and I didn't make any contacts. However, this was another learning experience and I'm looking forward to next month.
