Maybe I should emulate the wise cricket to the left; and should consider the NJ QSO Party to be a SSB event. Because QRP and a paddle don't seem to be cutting it!
I have been calling "CQ DE NJ DE W2LJ" for close to two hours now on both 40 and 20 Meters alternately; and all I've gotten is diddly squat. All I seem to be hearing is Mr. Cricket's chirps coming back at me.
Maybe it's just crummy propagation; as I don't hear much on either band, really. Maybe the bulk of activity happened yesterday and I'm just shoveling sand against the tide.
Maybe I'll try a little bit more, later. If you happen to hear someone calling "CQ DE NJ" on either 7.035 MHz or 14.035 MHz, that may be my lone voice crying out in the wilderness.
