Logs, April 17, 18 & 19

I have been a bit tardy posting my logs.  Blame it on a couple of days when the weather was actually good enough to get out in the yard.  (Followed, of course by a day of snow, ice pellets and freezing rain.  Ahhh, spring in Newfoundland.)

Lots of great listening these past few nights, despite the late fade-ins.  Thanks everyone.

I received this very unique QSL from Cool AM Radio for my reception last night.  Apparently, it is the first time he has used a mic live on air in quite a while!  

His ipod was giving problems, so he was also feeding music through the mic.  Despite this less than perfect arrangement, and ssb mode, audio was not bad!

Thanks Andre!
