DN46gh Canyon Ferry Lake June 8, 2014

On the shores of Canyon Ferry Reservoir.

We're just a 100 miles from home, but a great place to hang out for a few days and work the kinks out of the 2 meter gear which is all new to me. I'll be anxious to see how that all plays tomorrow morning on FSK441 meteors scatter. 200 watts and a nine element Yagi fed with LMR600 on 2M.

The rent here is right! Five dollars a day. As you can see I have shot over five miles of lake out to the east and southeast from here.

On 6M this afternoon W9RM, K0GU, KE7V, and K5WE were worked on a combination of scatter and meteors so far. The K3/KPA500 combo seems to work fine. Later in the day there were some short Es openings - best DX was AC4TO.
