Good contact

Around 8:42 PM EDST, May 30, I had an enjoyable contact with AC4FZ,Wally, in Lillington NC.  Signal strength was good on both ends; we exchanged RST 559.  Thanks for the QSO, Wally; I’ll send a QSL card.

On my end I was using my old S&S Engineering ARK-4 40-meter QRP CW rig with 5 watts out.  Key was the American Morse KK-1B, which I built from a kit.
