KB7Q/0 IOWA - Day 2

Conditions seemed even better this session. Clouds moved in early, then the rain started, so I had to use my azimuth circle and angle meter to stay on the moon. This was the last session for this trip and I ended up with a total of 93 contacts. I ran out of callers so I "hit the hay" at 2 AM local time. I know that five folks made their Worked All States on 2 meters so I slept well.

Stations added to the log this session:
PA1BVM, RK3FG, VE1KG, UX5UL, NC2V (WAS), UT6US, DL1VPL, HB9ADJ, SV6KRW, NJ2R, UN9L, OK1RD, DD0VF, UR3UB, YO3DDZ, HA6NQ, YO3JR, UT5ZN/P, W5UN, W6BBS, HB9MEY, SM5KWU, DF6SM, YO6OBK, ON4KHG, F4EGA, ZS4TX, PA2CHR, SM2BYC, SM4GGC, DK5EW,YU7XL, OT7K, OK1IL, PA3CMC, K6MYC, SK5AA, W2HRO, EA1YV.

It was great fun being able to put Iowa on the air - the station ran flawlessly and folks were great at spreading out so I could work them quickly. A special thanks to Rick, N0YY and Dee for hosting Joyce and I on this adventure.
Where to next? Hawaii perhaps?

Not everybody gets their own EME array in the front yard. :-)

KB7Q/0 IOWA - Day 1

The antennas set up in N0YY's front yard looking south.
Europe is in strong, but very fast Faraday rotation.

I got to take over the kitchen table for the station. Everything runs off a single 120 vac outlet, so the power is around 800 watts maximum.
A very good start for the Iowa trip. We arrived mid-afternoon and in about 2 hours had the station ready to go thanks to N0YY's help. Four stations made their 50th State for the W.A.S. award during this moon pass. How nice is that?! Conditions were generally pretty good, but Mr. Faraday was spinning wildly at times. The lunar eclipse was an extra special treat - Yes, we did have a "blood moon" here, but the world didn't end, my amp didn't even blow up. LOL.
