NY7N Bedspring Challenge update: We have our first winner!

K5URU just made a successful 5 watt JT mode contact to Australia on 10 meters using a Bedspring for an antenna! How crazy is that!? 

Blake’s one of the most dedicated hams I know! This is too cool, not only that but at this point in our solar cycle? With geomag storms going on? Using just 5 watts? On 10 meters? You get the point…… MIND BLOWN….! 

I really can’t give too much attention to the “band condition” websites anymore. This is a reinforcement of just get on the air and call CQ! Even if you think the band is dead – you might be in for a surprise!

Congrats Blake!
