The last working day for me in 2018 has come and gone and now it’s on to another long, holiday weekend!

Last night in the shack it was back to the key and trolling the waters where the SKCC gang usually toss their anchors. Well, the 80 meter waters because 40 just wouldn’t cooperate. It was raining pretty hard and the antenna has become finicky. But the thing was willing to play nicely on 80 and I enjoyed a nice evening of activity.

Then this morning in the pre-dawn hours before work I went back for a little more. The rain had stopped and 40 meters sounded pretty good. I had just enough time to put three more in the log before leaving for work.

Stolen moments like that are hard to find, but it was a great start to my day!
