Interesting condx on 6m MS over the weekend. Both days produced frequent very short pings, but very few burns that would sustain a completed Q. However, even with these conditions a few Q's were completed.

What did take some of my time (radio wise) over the weekend was the commencement of the new 10m yagi build. Boom and elements have now been assembled (see below), and hopefully installation will occur at end Sept.
