Tonight was the Barbershop QRP Sprint where all the ESE's (dit dididi dit) get on the air to hand out QSOs. The goal is to work as many ESE stations as possible.
I worked only one, Joe K5ESE from South Carolina on 80 Meters. In all I made 11 QSOs (4 0n 40 Meters and 7 on 80 Meters) before punking out early so I can go to bed.
The bands were nice and QRN free; but they also seemed to be devoid of a lot of stations, too. But these 11 QSOs gave me 125 in the log for the month of January; so, so far, I'm living up to my resolution of getting on the air a lot more than I did the second half of last year.
Always gotta look at the bright side!
