I worked Jim, w7gzs and as expected my rusty code was so bad that after sign off, I looked him up on QRZ and sent him a text apologizing for wasting his contest time. Hopefully I will get a little better in part 2.

First log with Flying Pigs!!!! Love the crispy bacon concept etc
Well missed first night by mixing up EDT with EST …rookie mistake I guess.
2nd night I was on EST started listening ….but heard nothing?
so I started squealing CQ FP with my trusty brass straight key “oink” is fun to send too…thought about programming into my ic-7300 then I thought what wrong night or time again? but nothing…maybe a whisper…tuned my audio DSP still no signals.
From Ontario I should of heard from southern qths…I’m checking my antenna ..which is literally a random wire “stabled” to the wooden fence then up a tree!
It loads and I’ve made contacts but QRO….so I’m thinking I’ll do better on 20m I have a dipole that I’ve reached Russia, Croatia and Germany with.
The first soapbox is always the longest ;) 73 Dave
