2009 PSK31 Valentine Sprint and More....

I had a great deal of fun working the 2009 PSK31 Valentine Sprint hosted by the PODXS 070 Club. The RTTY contest this past weekend kind of interfered, but I was able to log 44 contacts, and that's pretty good for me.

I don't typically contest, and I know I won't win... but it was fun nonetheless, and gave me something to do. I kinda like the little short sprints. I don't have the focusing qualities for the 30+ hour contests.

I also logged a few other PSK31 contacts not related to the sprint. I got the Canary Islands yesterday, EA8CLX, and Belgium, ON4LJA... all running 50w.

Friday, I worked some phone. Besides hollering at K5D all day, I worked two overseas special events: OL2009FIS - The World Ski Championship S.E. in Czech Republic and GB5OBH - Special Event in England commemorating the death of Buddy Holly. I also worked OZ5BF in Denmark -- What a nice OM! -- and S52QM in Slovenia.

As you can see... I'm having lots of fun with our new HF setup over here!
