Day 1- Worked 4 piggies. Three from IL an one from MO. Thanks to WB9HFK, WB9TZY, W0ITT and K9NUD for the contacts. All four had strong signals into SWNJ. Also heard a strong signal from KK4ITX but guess I didn't squeal loud enough for him to hear me. Day2 - Worked only W0ITT. Thanks Gary. Without that contact the day would have been a total loss. Made partial contacts with Iowa and Arizona stations but band not stable enough to finish the contacts.

W0ITT, Gary, MO, 5 watts fpqso1=3, dxqso1=0, nonfpqso1=0, Day_1_Total= 9 fpqso2=1, dxqso2=0, nonfpqso2=0, Day_2_Total= 3 , PigWalk20 Total: 12
First time I tried the 20m version.
First Day 3 piggies had good signals, didn't hear anyone else.
So I am using my NOOTA excuse (No One On The Air).
Day 2 was (what's the right word: terrible). I did hook up with Gene AA2YO again, then spent 50 minutes trying to raise anyone at all. Thanks, Gene, catch you next time.
72 to all

Day 1: I pulled the plug after 45 minutes. Thanks to Gene, AA2YO and John, KK4ITX for the QSO's! RBN showed decent spots around the country - just low activity it seems. 72, Mark WB9HFK oo

While warming up just before the start time I had a QRP DX QSO with NES, LU9FFS but it doesn't count because the QSO ended at 23:59 UTC. Worked two piggies Kurt, WB9TZY and Gary, W0ITT in the first 20 minutes. Didn't hear any piggies I could copy in the last 40 minutes. Only doing the first day.

Not a target-rich environment, though I snagged one piggie. Thanks, Gene, AA2YO for making sure this wasn't a total bust! KX3 @ 5W to EFHW up 40'

Thank you,Brian WB5ACT for my only contact! Only had 30 minutes to operate but will see how the band is on Thursday.
Well doggone! 20 meters was D-E-A-D DEAD here. I guess that’s just propagation for you. See you next time. Oink! Oink, y’alll!

I got away from working the RFB whenever it moved to the earlier time. Thought I'd try this. But I only heard one 20m piggy here in WPA, and that was just barely. Maybe I'll give it a try again on a 40m night.
73, Jody - K3JZD
