Portable QRP operation on Sunday from Holt Hill in Andover, Mass. Elevation 420'. Weather was hot (92F) and sunny with a strong breeze, sometimes gusty. Station Equipment: - Yaesu FT-817ND @ 5 Watts - 1/2 wavelength 6m aluminum dipole, homemade - Elk 2M/440L5 portable log periodic antenna Nearly a repeat of last June's VHF contest: A short hike and picnic on the hilltop with the YL as she read her books. Excellent Sunday afternoon 6m enhancement. Equipment operated well and as designed. Strong gusts toppled my antenna once during a QSO. The 12V 9Ah sealed gel battery kept going all afternoon. I brought a fully charged spare and didn't need it. The Sunday late afternoon enhancement was outstanding with good 6m exchanges with FL, GA, TN, and SC areas. DX lasted from 2040 through 2330. It felt like I was having a great afternoon but I didn't beat June 2016 in QSOs or scoring. Good local contacts with regulars but most effort spent on DX.
