My first winter Stew Perry from Florida. I was reasonably pleased with my result, considering that I am in the crummy station category, using a 65 ft wire vertical with base loading coil, hidden in a nearby tree with a minimal ground system, at our condo QTH. I had given some thought of trying to do some operating from the Sarasota Bay salt water location, but with the (for Florida) cold weather I just stayed at home. QSOs become a challenge with the distance to activity centers, but the extra points at least does not lead to score embarrassment. Only 3 two-point QSOs, vs. 32 four point and 30 six pointers. Best DX was N9RV - thanks to Pat for hanging in there. Down here it is also interesting to see who spends their time on their east-west beverages. Several big guns up north were S9+ but not even a "?" for my calls. 73 & Happy New Year to all! Jim K8MR
