This morning conditions have certainly deteriorated weather wise. The wind was blowing again, as it always does off the ocean, and it was raining. I was also tending one of our dogs that was on a leash tied to my leg, so not only did I have to fend off the rain and contend with the wind, but I had to keep untangling the leash from the table legs so the dog wouldn't tip everything over. And I received reports of RF feedback which didn't surprise me since everything is soggy here and I was probably a little low on battery voltage.
Nevertheless, I was able to make contact with N8IRC, K4FEG, N5OXT and N8RO.
Just as a reminder, it won't be necessary to send me a QSL to get CN73 confirmed. I will send EVERYONE I worked a QSL confirming our QSO, and when I get home I will upload the QSOs to LOTW.
Thanks to everyone. I will be on again on FO-29 for the evening passes if it has stopped raining.
Doc, WA7HQD, CN73sc
