I called CQ on 14.062 MHz, and Milt answered my call with a very nice 589 signal (Imagine that - a 589 QRP signal!). Milt was using his TenTec Corsair 2 - pumping a full QRP kilowatt of 5 Watts into a dipole at 60'. Wow! I wish I had some trees in my backyard that were 60' tall.
Milt's call was instantly familiar and a quick check into the log revealed that I had worked him in a couple of QRP-ARCI Sprints as well as handing him New Jersey for K6JSS/2 back in August. But we never had a ragchew. And we were on the verge of that this evening, but the band had other ideas. So while we were still copy-able to each other, we decided to call it quits. Discretion being the better part of valor, I guess. That was a shame, as I would have really enjoyed a longer QSO with Milt; but that's something that I can still look forward to at some other time.
Speaking of QRP ARCI Sprints ........ keep in mind the QRP ARCI Fall QSO Party is this coming weekend. Not a Sprint by any means, but a very fun event that can be as serious or as relaxed as you want it to be. I look forward to these - a lot!
