Thanks to all who called me. And thanks to my XYL Karen for doing all of the
driving. We had some fog early Saturday when we started, but otherwise
Saturday was a nice warm day. We snapped a picture of the world's biggest ball
of twine as we went through Cawker City, but otherwise didn't encounter any
tourist sites. We were a bit ahead of schedule so we added Wabaunsee before
stopping in Shawnee for the night. We quit about 6:30 since we were both tired
and hungry. On Sunday morning, we tried to stay ahead of the rain as we moved
south, but still went through a few showers, but no lightning. By lunchtime,
the rain threat ended. QSO rates were higher on Sunday, with a surprisingly
high rate in Sedgwick (where Wichita is) and the highest rate of all in Butler,
which is also usually well represented by fixed stations. We spent the last 15
minutes in the hotel parking lot in Sedgwick.
Twenty meters was surprising short at times, with openings to Missouri, Iowa,
and Illinois. Forty meters was not as productive as I expected. I made two
contacts on 15 meters as a result of requests from N6MU and N8II to QSY there.
Each time, I tried calling CQ there, but never got any other contacts. I'm sure
that self-spotting would have helped a lot, but it was not easy with the tiny
cell phone browser. Thanks to all who took the time to spot me. Overall, we
were pleased that I made more contacts that last year.
I have a special QSL card available for N0U. QSL via NU0Q.
73, Bill NU0Q a.k.a. N0U.
