By the skin of my teeth, literally!

I managed to snare K6JSS/1 from Vermont into the logbook.

I had QRPSPOTS on all day waiting for an announcement for 40 Meters.  As soon as I saw it, I scurried down to the shack and called K6JSS/1 as soon as I heard him.  Of course as soon as we started our QSO, some lid comes on frequency and begins a minutes long tuneup session.  Good grief!

As luck would have it, I started listening up a bit higher in frequency and found him calling CW without interference; and this time we concluded our QSO the right way.  Art KB1NHV QRT'ed from 40 Meters right after our QSO.  Guess he was tired of the QRM, too!

Hi Larry,

I really enjoy your blogging but…

The correct title would be “By the skin of my teeth (figuratively)” since no teeth or skin were actually involved.

Sorry but I couldn’t resist the light hearted edit!
