Signals started to pick up near the end but still very weak here.
IC 7300 EFHW @ 25’
Day 2 brought deep QSB, strong signals dropping to noise floor by end of contact. Nice to make a contact with KB9BVN, VA3AMX and WB9HFK on both nights. They always seem to have a good signal here.

Day 1 I could only operate for about 30min. Day 2: I got confused with the time; I should stick with the UTC time instead of local time. Anyway, got 3 bacons and 1 non-bacon like me :-) It was good to spend to some time after stressful day at work.72 Eric (Rig: IC7300 @5W and Vertical DX-88)

First FP event I've tried in quite awhile. Brought out the Index Labs QRP+ for the first time in awhile too. First night no pigs - second night the first station I worked came back and called me again - this time with his FP number. Great to be able to work K4BAI in Georgia - his antenna had to have done most of the work. Thanks John. Hope I can get a better antenna up for next time.
