I think good ol' Charlie Brown probably had a better day than I did.
The rain didn't come to an end here until 2:00 PM, an hour after FOBB began. I went with the plan of staying hive-bound, which didn't work out so well, either. My wife Marianne decided to do some laundry, so I was not only fighting QSB on the bands, I was also fighting horrific washing machine QRM. I could hear the "swish-swish" of the agitator in my ear buds. Criminy!
I ended up making a paltry 15 QSOs. W4MPS, Marc in North Carolina was by far the loudest signal I heard all day long. This is where the RBN skimers picked up my signals:
I am hoping and praying for better weather for the Skeeter Hunt.
The only bright side was that I was close to the snack drawer and the ice cold water in the refrigerator!
