A good night

I didn’t do a lot of DX tonight but I did contact KA0BOJ in Raymond, Nebraska, at the Branching Oak Observatory. In 20 years of being a ham, this was my first NE contact. That was fun though I did have to try for 30 minutes to bust his pileup on 20 meters.

I also finally got back into my eQSL account and it’s set up in ACLog. I did upload all of my contacts I’ve made in the past week or so up to LotW and eQSL. I need to get Clublog set up in ACLog and I will update that. I have to manually upload to QRZ’s logbook though. That I’ll do tomorrow.

The antenna I’m using will get fixed tomorrow sometime if the 95F+ weather doesn’t melt my skin off. Hopefully that will get the SWR down below 2:1 on my radio.

Received my new QSL stamp today but am waiting on my new QSL cards still…
