|Operated from The Reed City Crossroads Park, next to where the Fred Meijer White Pine Trail Linear State Park and the Pere Marquette Trail intersect. This spot was chosen to "activate" State Park # MSP204, a part of the three year "Michigan State Parks On Air" (see http://www.mspota.org/ for details of this celebration. KD8HNF joined me to try an activation using SSB on 20 meters, but the conditions were terrible from this location, and he made only 1 contact. Conditions on 40 seemed better than average, at least for the first 30 minutes. A greater number than recently came down to 40 at the beginning of the session. Signals were strong, made 18 q's in the first 30 minutes. Had a bit harder time after the horde of big guns descended on 40. My pipsquoke signal had a harder time fighting the mob, but.... lo! and behold! they must have drifted to another band, or gave up, because after 10 minutes or so I could find several open spots between 7028 and 7038!|
