It is kind of a tradition....
As long as we have lived at this house I have gotten on for the Minnesota QSO Party. Sometimes it is a solo event and other years Ben (N2BEN) participates.
This year is a solo event. I am operating in casual mode as I did get an early start... I decided to go on a 5 mile walk this morning instead. Then I had to get a new version of N1MM configured which turned out to be a little challenging since I run Linux not Windows.
The score is ok for a very casual operating event. I am sure that if I had called CQ on CW or SSB that I probably could have put an easy 100-150q's into the log if I had wanted to "run" vs operating "search & pounce." Today was fun & casual which is a nice way to spend an afternoon in the shack.
