15 degrees, clear, winds calm
This is Straight Key Night, and there is a lot of activity on the lower bands. I called CQ using 5 watts with J38 Straight Key on 40 meters then 80 meters for some time with no takers. I then got a reply from Ron, operating WA1WCC, the Chatham WCC Amateur Radio Assocation from Chatham, Massachusetts on Cape Code. Ron and I exchanged 599 both ways for a quick solid QSO. What a great way to start 2015.
