Red Rock Coulee Natural Area

Lethbridge started off windy as per usual so I decided to take Moose for a drive to the South Eastern portion of Alberta near Medicine Hat. Park VE-3114 had not yet been activated so I figured today was as good a day as any. The weather has been warm lately with double digit temperatures in January so strike while the iron is hot.

I left my equipment in the SUV from the prior night so packing was easy. The IC-705 and F-Loop 3.0 were ready for duty but I forgot my tablet so I wound up using HAMRS on my phone to log contacts. I also keep paper copies just in case.

Conditions were favourable and I was able to make 30 plus QSO’s in a relatively short period of time including a contact from the DR. I’ll attach a visualization of the contacts as well as some random shots from the day. The area itself was quite interesting, take a look at those rocks.

Moose and I had enough around 2PM local time and decided to head back to the QTH for the evening.

    Your setup was sure sounding great into Tennessee, Tyler. Congrats on reaching the DR, while qrp! And what a beautiful backdrop to play radio, imho. 72
