Enjoyed activating Parks on the air yesterday from fire island/smith point state park with my QRP set up. A bit surprised that I did not make more contacts after looking at the reverse beacon network and seeing that my 5 watts traveled across the country and into Europe. The weather was picture perfect for winter on Long Island. Of course the wildlife are always hanging around looking for a handout. I’m planning another activation later this week! 73 de Gary KE2YK
Had a blast operating as K2L during the 12 days of Christmas special event. Collectively we logged over 12000 contacts. A special thanks to Salli k2ryd for the very nice gift! Looking forward to doing it again next year!
