Memorial Day 2021

I was out of town visiting family for most of the weekend. However, I managed to get out for a brief QRP-portable outing this afternoon.

I headed back up to my daughter’s property and set up on top of a hill. The ground was a bit muddy from recent rains, so I set up in my truck. I set up my KX3 in the cab and mounted my 19-foot vertical on the back.

I started with an SKCC QSO on 40M with KG4GCX in North Carolina. I also had a chat with K4VSV in South Carolina. Bill was running 10W and was pounding into southeastern Pennsylvania.

I spent the rest of my time hunting for CW POTA activators and managed to work 5 of them: WD5GRW in Texas, K7CO in Utah, NG5E in Oklahoma, KD8IE in Ohio, and WB0TUA in Michigan. Thanks to these folks who took the time on a holiday to activate parks.

I hope all of my U.S. friends have a safe and enjoyable holiday. Please take time to remember those who made the ultimate sacrifice to defend our freedoms.

73, Craig WB3GCK
