Before getting ready to turn in for the night, I tuned my 2 meter radio to 144.200 MHz. I could hear about 5-6 pings per minute. I wasn't hearing any CW or SSB, but I went outside here in EM59 and I was able to see two shooting stars. I also looked at Andromeda, Jupiter, the Pleiades and the Orion Nebula. When I came back inside to turn off the radio, I hear an op in EM58 making some Qs! Darn I wish I had my tower and antennas up right now here in Girard! Oh well, I am getting closer towards that goal! Well, well, I just worked Smitty, W0DQY from a vertically polarized antenna!
