Pretty good day on the air despite poor band conditions. After another session of FT8 I decided to come up for air and do something else.

That something else was working a couple of special event stations. W0N was celebrating Nebraska’s 150th anniversary as a state. Another was K0KBX in Iowa celebrating Veterans Day.

Just after lunch I saw a message from Sean Kutzko, KX9X that he was planning to activate three parks in Connecticut today as part of the Parks on the Air program. I worked him from two of those three, KFF-1713 on CW and phone and KFF-4369 on 40 meter phone.

As it turned out, he made 250 contacts in that effort today - congrats to Sean for keeping the bands buzzing!
