Park-a-Day, Day 033

Here’s what’s happening - in 2021, two operators ( N5HA, Kenneth Bailey & W9AV, Clint Sprott ) managed to work at least 1 park every UTC day. My goal for 2022 is to do the same, and to try and write a short post about the day’s first contact. If you want to play along, feel free - I’ll be sharing updates about it during the monthly POTA updates that I prepare for the various ham radio media outlets.

now that you’re in the know about the Baily-Sprott Challenge, here’s the scoop for today:

Bailey-Sprott Challenge Update

As usual, there were a handful of early-birds on the air this morning, so by the time it reached mid-morning and I had a break where I could sneak in some quick hunting, I didn’t have any trouble at all making today’s first QSO. For day 33, that came via Kent, KQ4KK while he was activating K-8146.

In my random observations category - for some reason today CQR log stopped reading fequency from my rig. I poked at the couple obvious things (making sure all the cables were connected, making sure the rgctld service was running, etc.) but it still isn’t working correctly. Guess I’ll have to poke around a little bit at that, to sort it out.

Bailey-Sprott Challenge Status: 33 for 33.
