The first hour was 40 meters. On SSB, I did hear Mike AC4MV in Virginia. He did not hear me. I did not hear any others from the RaDAR Community so I worked a couple of Arkansas QSO Party stations. On CW, I worked Bob WB4BLX and Jim K4LIX in Panama City. Also from Panama City I worked Mike KM4ELJ who is a relatively new ham and has picked up the code. I enjoyed my first CW QSO with Mike. I was a bit weak into Panama City.

During the second hour on 20 meters SSB, I was having no problem and picked up six on SSB and two stations working the SKCC Weekend Sprint. Later in the day, I worked a couple more SKCC stations. My rocket launch was a four inch diameter payload rocket on an I140 motor. I hope to put a 20 meter HF beacon in the payload for a future launch.
