My sis-in-law is visiting from Florida. We’re enjoying hot drinks ... sitting in the back yard.
GoSatWatch gives my iPhone a buzz: SO-50 is
a’comin’ - with a 65-degree elevation pass.
I saunter over to the patio, and pick up my Elk with an FT-60R at 2W TX power already attached, and walk back to our picnic table.
Worked two countries in less than two minutes: the U.S and Mexico.
My sis-in-law was properly impressed (grin).
What a magnificent hobby, indeed!
