Day 2: Many thanks to Brad, KG5UK for hanging in there to complete a QSO! It was marginal on my end. I was showing RBN hits in Europe, The Caribbean and Western N. America - the band was long. I shut down after 40 minutes tonight. See everyone next time! 72, Mark WB9HFK oo

Day 1-Lots of stations on the band but most were non-pigs. Thanks to piggies WB9HFK, WD9EGW, KT4WA, AF4PX, N4MJ, and K3RLL for the contacts. Day 2-No piggies heard. Almost worked non-piggie POTA station, K5OHY.Only able trade RST and state but not enough info to qualify as a real QSO. Quit after a half hour.

WD9EGW, Chuck, IL, 5W fpqso1=2, dxqso1=0, nonfpqso1=2, Day_1_Total= 8 fpqso2=1, dxqso2=0, nonfpqso2=0, Day_2_Total= 3 , PigWalk20 Total: 11
Day 1 - Thanks to AA2YO and N5IM for the contacts. I think KT4WA and I were in contact but lost him in the noise. Worked 2 non piggies who were in the NAQCC Sprint.
Day 2 - Thanks to KG5UK who came out of the noise and gloom to answer my CQ. He was the only Flying Pig I heard. There were strong signals from Europe, however.
See you next time. 72 Chuck

First try at walking for bacon, and first bacon run for KH1.
Mark, WB9HFK was worked both days but day 2 was a true test for the KH1 receiver . WD9EGW gave the transmitter section a generous RST that made me smile.
Mission accomplished, I had fun !!

Day 1- Forgot time and was late but joined in the NAQCC Sprint.
Day 2- Only one piggie found Mike N0MPM in CO and one non-piggie Dave KI5CAW in NM. So 20M was long but few piggies.

Day One: Lots of static down here in Fla. Thanks to Mark/WB9HFK and Gene/AA2YO for the contacts. Chased Chuck/WD9EGW for a while, very weak, he slipped away on 3 occasions, I grabbed him, but could not get him in the pen!
had fun. Maybe on second day?
Day Two: Heavy static. I barely heard Mark/WB9HFK squealing out there, couldn’t catch him.. Same with N0MPM… Gave up after 40 minutes… Guess I’ll have to clean the sunspots off the antenna and try the next event. de Izzy, 72

Apologies to K3JZD and W4NLT, my only two contacts. I had forgotten my Oink Number (11584) so just sent "5W". But two East Coast QSOs with 5 watts felt good, then the band went long!

Day 2: 20m Short skip is tough late in the evening. Just tried for 30 minutes. 72, Jody - K3JZD

Had a late start made contacts with Mark WB9HFK and Charles WD9EGW on first night. Had intense thunderstorm second night and lost power, so made no contacts. Really strange band conditions...better luck next time! 72 oo de Bill N5IM
