I spent Saturday night with my parents in Dothan, Alabama. Sunday, I setup in the backyard. My Dad spent some time out there with me He is 87. He was never a ham, but he had a lot to with me getting my license when I was a teen. He built many Heathkits including the large projection TV. I did work five stations on five bands. The first QSO was Venezuela on 10 meters SSB.
Monday morning I operated as K3Y/4 for the SKCC Anniversary. I used the KX3 with the NA4RR hex beam at the club house. I had some help from club members including Bob Leasko WB8PAF. The count was 28 QSOs across 17 states and two QSOs from France including Bert F6HKA on 15 meters. Manfred DJ1SJ made a real effort to copy me but no luck this time.
