Of course!

Because after a rainy day yesterday, today is supposed to be sunny and a
bit warmer. So I made sure to bring the KX3 in anticipation of some
lunchtime QRP. And then I saw this:




And Marv K2VHW sent me this:

IPS FLARE ALERT - PART A

So today might not be too good of a QRP day at lunch. Just thinking out
loud. But you never know, because sometimes when you assume things - even
obvious things, you can look pretty darned foolish when all is said and
done.

When I worked at Sinar Bron, for a lot of my years there, I had a boss who
was an engineer in a previous career. And every now and then we would be
working on a problem and he would offer a solution. And I'd say to
him, "That's all well and good, but in real life .......". Inevitably, I
would immediately get "that look". No offense to you engineer types out
there, but sometimes what works out on paper doesn't always coincide with
the real world. He had a hard time grasping that concept. So it just may be
interesting to see if what appears on "paper" above, compares with what I
actually find out on the bands in a few hours.

QRP - When you care to send the very least!

My lunch time result was one QSO with Jim, K8CMX/4, who is on vacation in
South Carolina. From Facebook, I was able to see his portable station,
which was a KX1 to a Buddistick mounted on the third floor balcony where he
is staying.
