Something new

I did something new tonight. I had my first QSO on the 60 Meter band.

I saw an article on the ARRL's Website that gave the frequencies for the centers of each "channel", so I thought I would give it a go. Plus the fact that I wanted to do something other than take part in the NAQP.

So I called CQ on "channel 3", which is 5.3585 MHz. I was answered by Dick W3ORU who was 599 plus into NJ. He gave me a nice report, also. We had a nice chat until the dinner call came. Dick gave me the lowdown on what I can expect to see on the band.

Definitely not used to the " channel" concept, but I had a nice time, anyway. I am looking forward to more QSOs on 60 Meters.

72 due Larry W2LJ
QRP - When you care to send the very least!
