Sanibel Island, Florida

I operated from the Sanibel Island Lighthouse (USA 734) from 1530z until 1715z  (10:30 am until 12:15 pm EST) on 20 meter SSB.  I only made about 12 contacts.  Conditions didn't seem to be there although everyone worked had a good signal and gave me a decent signal report.  Perhaps everyone was taking a break on this Monday after the ARRL DX CW contest.   The log has been uploaded to LOTW.  If you don't see your confirmation on LOTW please check your log to make sure you logged me as N9AW/4 and not just as N9AW.

Mt. Dora, Florida

I operated from the Mt. Dora Lighthouse (USA 1407) from 1615z until 1815z (11:15 am until 1:15 pm EST).  Mt. Dora is a small lighthouse (only 25 feet tall) on a lake.  The city of Mt. Dora is quaint and very nice.  It offers parks, shopping and a vibrant downtown district with shops and restaraunts.   The log has been uploaded to LOTW.  If you don't see your confirmation on LOTW please check your log to make sure you logged me as N9AW/4 and not just as N9AW.

NATIONAL PARKS ON THE AIR

21 January 2016  -  Castillo de San Marcos National Monument  (MN14)

The log has been uploaded to LOTW.  If you don't see your confirmation on LOTW please check your log to make sure you logged me as N9AW/4 and not just as N9AW.  

I operated on 20 SSB on 1/21/16 from Castillo de San Marcos (MN14).  The radio was an Elecraft KX3 running 10 watts and battery operated.  The antenna was a 20 mtr dipole configured as a V (as pictured above) on a 19 ft. mast with a drive on stand.  I made about 290 QSOs at this location.  Special thanks to those I worked and also to the park rangers who granted permission to use their administrative office location to make the operation safer for the general public (rather than using the public parking area).

Again, LOTW and QSLs have been completed.  If you don't see your confirmation on LOTW please check your log to make sure you logged me as N9AW/4 and not just as N9AW.
