NewsOf course, in the meantime, I make sure I'm able to get a good SWR. Using my YT-100, I get a 1.5:1 match across the band. Sweet! I'm in.

After what seems like an eternity, night time finally rolls around. I tune around. I hear a couple fellows talking, and I wait for a pause. I call out, "Can anyone hear me, N6DTE." The response was immediate! And for the next hour, I had a QSO with a couple fellows, one in Medford, OR, and the other in the North Bay here in California, like they were in the room with me. I had a lot of fun. Another fellow from Manteca, CA joined in.

So far, in my HF experiences, usually the band fades and this facilitates the end of of a QSO. Well not so this evening, the conditions were seemingly gangbusters, as I didn't even have a hiccup our whole time, and I finally came up with an excuse to duck out!

So on that note, I think I've typed out just about enough for one day... In conclusion, I've finally been putting this general ticket to some good use and been getting a lot of enjoyment out of the hobby as a new ham. I'm off to send out a couple of QSL cards. 73, So long.
