out of work early to come home and watch the Cubs
game. Though I have a very short commute, I tuned up on 17m and found ZF2LH
(Larry) on 18.15750 hanging out and putting a few QSOs in the log on the HFPack
calling frequency. He was on a Buddipole and had a pretty good signal though the band was closing. I wonder what configuration he was using? Anyway, keep checking these higher bands for openings. They are open much more often than you might expect.
Before I became engrossed in the game, I was able to sort about 50 cards for the outgoing QSL buro
. I'll drop that box in the mail tomorrow along with some direct requests that came this week. This means I have only a small handful of NE1RD/1 cards to turn around to be completely free of QSL cards. Hooray!
 I had written "snuck" as in "I had snuck out of work", but the dictionary insists that "sneaked" is preferred. Who knew?
