What the day is all about:
Happy 4th of July to all!
On a side note, the Governor and NJ Legislature have reached a budget agreement. State offices will re-open Wednesday and beaches and parks will be open tomorrow - while I'll be doing yard work.
And yes, I got sucked into the 13 Colonies event again this year. but this time I will not succumb to the temptation of using a microphone to get a clean sweep. All I am missing is VA, RI and MD. To whomever was behind the key tonight at K2D in CT, thank you for the QSO and thanks for the neat surprise of hearing "Hi Larry" coming back to me.
I even managed to work WM3PEN for the bonus and worked the NJ station on 160 Meters last night. THAT was definitely cool! If I get the remaining three states, I will be a happy camper, but I would truly like this to be an all CW Clean Sweep. If I don't get it because of lack of CW activity by the remaining states, I will be disappointed; but not devastated.
Have a safe and Happy Independence Day!
