Tons of fun! Noisy 40m, but very patient ops... Thanks to all who heard me! AF4PS Nr-51

Good hour of operation. More activity than I had expected. 10 members and one who apparently thought he was a member, but gave me a five digit member #. So I gave him a SKCC # and he gave me a different five digit SKCC number. Maybe I should check the membership list. Did get his power, so will consider him a non-member. Thanks for all QSOs. May be able to be QRV for the first half hour or a little less tomorrow night. 73/72, John, K4BAI.

Had fun on day 1. With 5w, had 11 QSO's for 17 qso points and 8 mults. 9 FP QSO's and two non-FP QSO's. I was the first ever CW contact for one fellow, KE4MAC, which I thought was awesome. He did great despite his nervousness. On day two I took a nap and overslept. I missed the session as I had been operating at WW2LST all day, which is on its yearly goodwill cruise on the Ohio River.

Forgot about Day 1, but remembered Day 2. Great to hear all the QRP sigs! Band condx seemed to deteriorate as we went on. Tnx to a WI5 OM (WI5H?) for a valiant effort. Even though I increased to 5W, we just couldn't hear each other well enough! Only got one more piggie after that. Much tnx to all! Elecraft K1 to 135 ft EFHW inv L at 40 ft. oo, Kevin KI4DEF

I participated on Day 1 only and was able to pull 5 signals out of the noise. I enjoyed the event and will give it a try again sometime.

Missed Day 1. Day 2 lot of background noise made it tough on the one good ear. Couple of returned calls just could not be copied. See you next time 72 OO

Only heard (and worked) two stations: AF4PS and KI4DEF. Thanks for digging me out of the QRN.
Running a Yaesu at 5W to a low dipole. I was using an old Speed-X hand key.
Fun event. I still love it when I can copy a weak signal down in the noise and he can copy me. Great hobby!

Couldn’t get on Day 1. Day 2 was on the full hour, but the pickings were slim. Thanks to W9NX and especially AF4PS for pulling me out. I’ll put a reminder on my calendar for next month.

Thank you Mike - WI5H for the only contact. Could hear that other stations were on but they were right at the noise level.
