Double the fun!

Got some solder melted on the MRX-40 tonight and also managed to work 32 stations in the QRP-ARCI Spring QSO Party. A little bit tough when someone answers your CQ and you're in the middle of soldering a component in!

As suspected, 40 Meters was once again clogged with RTTY signals down all the way to about 7.035 MHz. But luckily, it was clear enough around 7.030 MHz.

80 Meters was great! A bit of QRM and some QSB; but this was my "money" band as I made a majority of my contacts there. The contest runs right up until 8:00 PM tomorrow night; so maybe I'll get a chance throughout the day to try for some 15 and 20 Meter contacts.

It's not helping that the sun spot number hasn't gone up in a long, long time.
