Today, I spent a lot of time on 20m CW, making eight contacts in about 3 hours of operating time. What can I say? I like to rag chew.
My first contact this morning was with Patrick, NY2PO. Guess what he does for a living? Yep, he’s a New York City police officer.
One of my contacts this afternoon was with Esther, KA4IFF, who happens to be one of the founders of FISTS. She is FISTS #11! She had a great fist, too, especially for someone who is 86 years old.
My shortest contact of the day was with VE6CCC. I heard him calling CQ, and he was kind of weak, but I’d never worked anyone with a suffix containing the same character three times, so I called him. Unfortunately, the conditions only got worse and we were unable to continue the QSO.
PET PEEVE: Operators who spell out the word “WATTS” instead of using the abbreviation “W”.
