Family commitments and issues have kept me from doing much radio related stuff lately, which is why I haven’t blogged much recently. When I have had some spare time, I’ve been using it to complete the documentation for my FDIM 2010 QRP Challenge entry, which I finally finished and submitted last night. After attending a marathon childbirth class last weekend with Jennifer, I did get a chance to operate for a few hours in 7QP, which was a nice bit of time away from “real life”. I stuck to phone only because I still don’t feel like I have the mental acumen to tackle CW contesting for more than a few QSOs. Even though I only got to operate sporadically, I did double my score from last year, so that was kind of cool. I think I got QSOs with all of the New England states because their QSO party was running concurrently with ours.
Now I have to get ready to fly out of here next week for Dayton. I don’t know if I’ll be able to liveblog from Dayton, but I’ll do my best to get some photos and initial impressions up on the blog while I’m still there. I hope to get at least one post up each day I’m there. I can’t wait to meet all you QRPers at FDIM!
