Nice 10M "E" opening to Maine, 12/22/2019, 22:45UTC.

Yeah, nice "E" QSO to near Augusta, ME on 28.415MHz USB. Signal from S1 - S9 peak. I worked this guy with a re-CAP'ed late 80's RCI-2950 with just over 20W PEP to a reconditioned 10M Ringo 1/2-wave GND Plane. I hope that we have a great "E" season this winter, but this is a nice start. Even better, when 6M opens up.
I was asked, yet another weird question, of how I would like to be buried, when I finally bite the big one. The answer was actually pretty easy. Face-down, like a certain historical figure in the late 1980's, (I will not mention who, but some of you will get it, and that's enough.) Why??? It would be a burial that will satisfy everyone: (1) My enemies will say that it will show me where to go. (2) On the same point, I can have my enemies kiss my butt. (3) It will temporarily give someone a place to park a bicycle. See??? A WIN / WIN for everyone.
