Working for a string of QRP Contacts

35 degrees
light (but constant) rain

The weather threatened to be messy here, but the freezing temperatures are just above us in Massachusetts.  We've had probably 1/2 inch of rain in the past 24 hours.

I answered NU5X, Jim in Arkansas tonight with 5 watts on 40 meters.  He picked up my call on the first try with a 339 signal report.  We worked 30 meters earlier in the year.

I've decided no New Year's resolutions for 2013.  I don't tend to keep them.  But I hope this will be the beginning of a string of QRP contacts for the coming year.  I have my eye on some NAQCC and SKCC low power awards.
