After the Fox, 2007 Edition

I joined the QRP Fox Hunt for the 1st hunt tonight. I dialed the IC-7000 power down to 9%. I measured 5 watts at 10% last week, so 9% should be safely in the QRP range. Conditions on 20 were terrible, for the most part. I found John, K4BAI, after about 30 minutes, and got a 579 report from him, for 1 fox.
I found ET, N1FN, up the band too, but he was never above the noise. I only knew he was there from the fragments of the exchange I could catch.
So, 1 for 2 in the summer series. I’ll see how next week goes.
But I will say, working with dual VFOs is sweet.
