After spending a week visiting a family friend in Sarasota, I spent Saturday
with my sister in The Villages. While there I was able to throw a 14 foot wire
over a small tree and fire up the KX3/KXPA100 to make some QSOs on 20/15/10. No
Es openings to speak of, the loudest signals on 15 were from TX or CA. 

Spent some time operating through local T-showers around 2300z, but with a 12
foot high antenna I wasn't too worried.

When the rest of the family went to bed, I replaced the 14 foot wire with a 33
foot one (same three radials)over the same 15 foot tree and proceeded to work
40 meters.

Best QSO of the weekend: while CQing on 15 I got a call from a rather loud
K2PS, Pete in FL. I looked him up on QRZ.com and discovered he lives about 2
miles from my sister. So I sent him an email, he called me back, and then
stopped by with his XYL for a very pleasant eyeball QSO with all of us.
