With the Mississippi QSO Party on the horizon, K4FMH planned an expedition to Issaquena County (No Hams). Unfortunately, Mother Nature did not cooperate. On Friday Night before the QSO Party a squall line moved through Mississippi followed by a record setting cold front. By the time K4FMH, K5XU, KW5GP, and AC5YL arrived on site at a Picnic Shelter in Mayersville it was in the low 40's with a strong north wind.
Not a good day for playing Ham Radio in the wide open spaces. In the photo KW5GP operates digital in the rear of the photo, AC5YL in the middle on SSB, and K5XU on CW in the front (only edge of CW bench shown). Wait til next year! (Photo provided by K4FMH)
