|Too many things on the go this weekend. Radio was, unfortunately, not at the top of the list. When I did manage to get on the air, I found CONDX -- at least from my QTH -- extremely awful. But when antennas were pointed in my direction… WOW! Amazingly crystal clear signals rising above the noise. Too bad that doesn't happen much. I understand the reasons why. I just wish it weren't so. Maybe because of CONDX, I found myself QRMed off my run frequency too many times to count. Sometimes it was another op who suddenly started CQing, or it sounded that way because he wasn't there when I started calling CQ, or else it was ops responding to the other op. Even when ops were several kilocycles away -- and yes, I know, there wasn't much room anywhere because the good bands were full of CQing stations -- the splatter made CQing impossible for me. Very disappointing. Because of the above, I wasn't able to enjoy my usual JA run. Didn't actually expect much DX in the log, either, so I was surprised that I actually have some EU. My thanks to those ops who picked my callsign out of the noise. As always, regardless of the challenges and negatives, there were happy moments, too. Great to put familiar callsigns in the log. Wonderful to say hello to people near and far. Nice to have been spotted now and then, which postponed the intentional/unintentional QRM for a little while. :) Thanks to all who heard me. See you next time. 73 Rebecca VA7BEC|
