Puerto Rico on 40 Meters
I'm beginning to love 40 meters more and more every night. Especially since I worked another "southern" station last night. I heard KP4SJ in Puerto Rico and exchanged the basics. There's a big storm bearing down on them now but it didn't phase our QSO. Pablo had a good signal here in West Virginia.
Afterwards, I watched the International Space station cross West Virginia sky. The pass put it parallel to the Appalachian Trail as it sped up the eastern coast towards Maine. I've seen it a couple of times recently but forget to take the handi-talkie with me. If there's any activity on the ham bands, it can be easily heard in the brief few minutes that it's visible in the sky.
