Received A QSL (K8T), Made A QSO (W9IMS)

Today was a good day for the radio. I received a QSL card from K8T, the special event station in Steubenville, OH that I worked a couple of weeks ago. The were celebrating a "Tribute to the American Soldier" and were the first special event station I worked. They sent me a nice card with a nice brochure about Fort Steuben.

I just got finished working W9IMS, a special event station at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway. They're celebrating the Brickyard 400 and when I saw that they had a special event station this weekend, I was really hoping that I'd be able to work them. They had trouble copying me (gave me a 55), but I'm just glad that I was able to get through the small pileup that was developing. Everyone I heard tonight was a good, considerate operator. I can't wait to see what the QSL card looks like for this one!

I also started using a software logging program: RUMLog. I've already got a few things about it I don't like, but it's the only Mac program I've found so far that comes close to what I'd like. Maybe as I get more experience, I'll like it (or some of the other programs I've tried) better. I definitely want to find a software logging solution that I like before I get too many entries in my logbook. Right now, I've got 26.
