Default VHF Contest

Anyone made any contacts during the contest? 6 was open Saturday afternoon and evening. I was just piddling here and there and not really working it hard. I'm not really a contest guy but it was a good time to check out my 6 meter H Double bay that I had built. I think it did well and I had fun. Making contacts on a home built antenna always makes me smile.

I made about 20 6 meter contacts. Band was up and down but had a good time. Then spent rest of the day at the Little Washington summer fest.
Man it was hot!

You did better than me. I did about 15. Everything out of state was in 5 land. 2 in Louisiana and the rest in Texas. Shortest contact was 3 miles away to a friend of mine. He joked about how great the propagation was from my location to his. I asked him if he wanted me to send him a QSL for the momentous event. He said not to waste the postage he'd come pick it up. It was a fun day. Probably won't get on 6 any today. We are off to visit MIL here in a minute. Might try some 2 meter simplex in the mobile on the way. Lots of guys up in the mountains this weekend working the contest.

I stop contesting and took the boat out today. Should had stayed home. About 6 miles up the river the temp went 240. Some reason the water pump is not pumping water into the engine. Inboard with merc cruz. I did hit a sand bar so maybe something is stopped up.
