|A 28 watt solar panel just for fun. It topped off the battery so it was putting in more than I was using.|
I jumped back to 40 CW and ran across AK4JA Bobby in Newnan, Georgia. This was fun because I have worked Bobby several times including 60 meters. I also met Bobby for breakfast when he was in Panama City a while back. We exchanged SKCC numbers. Bobby is one to watch for as he often runs QRPp. Fred VE3FAL was monitoring the meetup on Google+. The -21C wind chill in Thunder Bay, Ontario would not allow an outing there. But never the less Fred suited up with his PRC 104 radio and stepped outside into the weather. We pulled off a QSO back on 21.357 15 meters. His grid square was EN58HH.
Note Fred worked KK4QAM Don in Alabama at the end of the video. Don is another RaDAR op and he setup a homemade Buddistick for the meetup.

Eddie ZS6BNE was doing a mountain RaDAR adventure in South Africa that started well before the RaDAR meetup. Details to follow he says. I like this photo from the outing he shared.

So this was my take on the RaDAR meeting. Not a lot of QSOs but it is hard to beat working my friends doing RaDAR pedestrian mobile. The last photo is Suzy a RaDAR beginner.
