Well today was a good day for radio in the park.  Overcast and early mist in the air but not a problem.

Several contacts on 20 meters PSK31.  Band conditions could have been better but fun anytime.

Thanks to all that stopped by to check out our setup and grab a dough-nut and cup of coffee.

Special thanks to "Old Man FUY" for getting the word out about Radio in the Park.

Hopefully we can do this again before all the hot weather shows up.

Again thanks to all that were in the park today.
