Colorado QSO Party: Club Members Royce Seymour, AAØJD, and Bill Bear, KCØQXX

Club members Royce Seymour, AAØJD, and Bill Bear, KCØQXX, participated in the Colorado QSO Party held Saturday, 5 Sept 2105. Bill Bear reports that they operated from the Delta-Gunnison county line north of Paonia. The weather was a bit wet and the ground muddy, but they were able to set up their station. They used a multi-band dipole and a beam antenna to make several hundred contacts. Bill sent the following photos:
