I thought I would pop onto HF Friday morning for a few minutes. I called out CQ a few times. Then KN4GBZ responded back to me. I about dropped ot the floor when he told me he was working remotely in Switzerland!!! He was there for a vacation ski trip. I was able to hold a QSO with him for a few minutes then propagation bottomed out on us.
Yesterday was Winter Field Day. I was able to attend the Northern Illinois ARES and Skywarn WFD. But I was not able to make it to the RARA WFD. I was hoping to make it to both. At the ARES one, I was able to socialize and see some pretty neat setups. Being the location it was held at, I also was able to see a group of deer in the field and a beautiful sunset! I didn’t work any of the equipment. I mainly went to socialize and have fun. Which I did 🙂 It was good to see everyone. It is good to see the Northern Illinois ARES and SKYWARN team ready to go for any situation.
I haven’t did too much RS stuff the last few days. I been taking time away to spend family time. Later on tonight I am going to focus back on RS. I was able to enjoy some quality time away. Now its time to get back in the groove 🙂
I want everyone to still keep Raeanne, Brandon and their family in your thoughts and prayers. They are going through such a difficult time. Please send some positive vibes their way. May Justin R.I.P.
I have missed the last few nights of Coast to Coast AM. Been some good topics on there too! Thank god I am a C2C Insider and can listen to them when I want too 🙂 I think my plans later on today, will go and listen to those archives.
