It's nice to share

It's nice to share ..... so I will!

My good QRP CW friend Jim Cluett W1PID has had another outdoor QRP adventure. This time he was operating from the frozen surface of Hermit Lake, which is near his home QTH of Sanborton, NH.

For the rest of the story (ala' Paul Harvey) and some neat pictures, do yourself a favor and visit http://www.w1pid.com/articles/ice/ice.html Hey, Jim, you're not supposed to be able to do this - Global Warming and all, don't ya know!

The 40 Meter Foxhunt was a bust tonight at station W2LJ. The Foxes were strategically placed in NJ and VA tonight. Let's put it this way. The Russian "letter beacon" on 7.038 MHz and some K6 stations were coming through loud and clear. 40 Meters went long and the Foxes were too close!

I just checked out the temperature forecast for Saturday. Looks like a high of 49 degrees. I don't think there's going to be too much freezing bonus points in the FYBO contest this coming weekend!
