We’re snowbirding in our RV out on the BLM lands near the Arizona/California
border again this winter. I put up the balloon vertical over 60 radials for the
contest. It seemed like a slow start Friday night – lots of rapid QSB and a
fairly high noise level made for many repeats, but by sunrise I had 423 contacts
logged. – Slightly better then I did in all of last year’s contest.  Saturday
was much more fun – I could hear Maine and Japan at the same time! Highlights:
Having ZL6QH pop out of nowhere for a quick QSO off my CQ, giving up on the
BA4RF pile up and finding a lonely UA0DC calling CQ 10 Khz higher, and working 
a string of 20 JA’s at 10 points each. Fun, fun, fun!
        Gear: Just built baby K-2  feeding an RM KLA-300 solid state amp at 120
watts out (RV batteries permitting), N1MM logger, and a five foot helium balloon
holding up 130 feet of #18 wire. Now to roll up and store all those ground
