Thank you to contacted stations in Montana ... Tennessee ... Laguna Beach ... Colorado ... Texas ... the event's parking lot ...
A special thanks to Patrick WD9EWK for his assistance last Saturday during the 2nd annual Palm Springs HamFest. While working the second pass of the day, I heard a familiar voice calling me. Same grid square, too - DM-13. Just after contacting Tennessee, and kiddingly telling the assemblage, "Wow - can this REALLY work THAT far? Tennessee at 2 Watts?" ... Patrick contacts me from the parking lot of the event ... (grin)
SO ... We communicated with stations from 150 feet away, to 2000+ miles away in Tennessee. The group was properly impressed!
