No, No, No. I am not trying to be hard on myself. I am a DOP - not a dope! I am a "Dispenser of Points". At least that's the role I took on in my participation in the QRP-ARCI Spring QSO Party today. Not out to win anything - just have fun and hand out points to the serious contenders.
This afternoon, on the higher bands, I though it was going to be a DX party. I was hearing and worked a few DX stations. EA2LU as I mentioned before on 15 Meters and HA7UG on 20 Meters. But right around dinner time 40 Meters livened up with activity and I started having some fun.
From there it was down to 80 Meters to work some closer in stations. Conditions were decent with lots of loud stations, but also a lot of loud static crashes. Then it was back to 40 Meters to see if it had gone long. And it did. I was able to work some farther away stations and now I am going to call it quits for the day.
The K2 and the EDZ did a fine job on 40 and 80 Meters. I am becoming more and more satisfied with it and do not have the yen to pull it down in place of anything else (at this point!).
Tomorrow will be a busy day and I'm not sure I'll get any air time. If that's the case, then that's all right as I had a lot of fun this evening.
