Thanks for a successful birthday activation. It was a hot one. What you do on your birthday you will do throughout the year! I use the manual tuner because it works! Thanks for all the hunters including France and p2p and Hunters! Some how my wrist started giving me issues and my yl suggested I wear the brace for the activation. I guess it worked not feeling any pain!

Weather was iffy a few sprinkles but cleared off. The clouds made seeing the ipad easier. So just a word of encouragement if you are trying to learn CW. Keep up with it. Find someone to get on the air with it. When MO came in today that was a hoot!

The rain forecast made me to decide to operate from the car today using my MFJ Short HF Mobile Ham-tenna. 13 contacts mostly p2p but did make a couple of contacts by calling  cq on 15 and 40. I activated US-8010 yesterday. The parks join each other but they are not a two for.  I had good reports on my signal today. Thanks for the contacts. In the video I said 35th activation actually 34th.

Fancy mobile installation

Great day for an activation. Started out cloudy and cold but ended up sunny. This is the third activation for me. Had two sets of visitors approach me. I got to tell them about amateur radio and gave them my card. As you are setting up just be aware of your obstacles. If I get too carried away I could slip into the ditches around the area. The antennas location doesn’t look like a dream antenna but I enjoyed the signals. This is in North Carolina. Thanks for the hunters and p2p.

My first activation of this park was 11/29/2022. This was just after moving to Rockingham, NC I got enough activations for the kilo award yesterday. I believe this was the soonest kilo award for my number of activations for this park. Anyhow I just decided to go after the repeat offender award this year. Happy new year! Thanks for the p2p and hunters.
