QRP contact for tonight was with Lou, K3OXG in Pennsylvania. This was especially neat as we currently have blizzard conditions with 12" snow, 40 mph winds, 22 degrees outside. I was out shoveling earlier, and was amazed at how the ladder line dipole is dancing up in the trees. I took time to loosed the support ties today in the hope of preventing a break under stress tonight. I bet the ladder feed line is bouncing up and down over 10 feet.
Using 5 watts to the dipole, we were able to complete the contact. There was quite a bit of QSB, so I appreciate Lou's efforts with my code and pulling my signal out of the wind.
