The YL and I both had trouble sleeping last night. As a result of finally drifting off at 3AM, we didn't rise until nearly 11AM. Very late, for us.
I had the station still on the table in the main room from the day before and decided to see if anyone was on 17M.
So, from this location and with antenna, such as it is, facing south, I have worked, 6W/HA0NAR, 5X8C, and 4Z5AD. I am pretty satisfied with those contacts. Still 3/4 watts from the FT-817 and some wire, most of it on the 1st floor small balcony. Results to the north have been poor.
I see one of the big CW contests is this weekend. so to those participating, good luck and have fun.
