We got a dusting of snow over night. I awoke at 0400 to see the snow falling. The yard and driveway were very slick. Mister Mann (our rescue cat) wanted to go outside like he often does. He did not last long and decided it was better to chase DX with me inside. He did not seem to like Turkey that much but Mayv our calico (over 20 years old), loves it!

While the XYL, Lynn KC0YQF, was cooking our bird (one of the few times we eat meat) I decided to tune around the bands. I am still working towards DXCC QRP (QRP = Low Power or less than 5 Watts) and my results for the day was as follows:
9Y4/WJ2O Trinidad and Tobago
V26K Antigua and Barbuda
PJ2/N5OT and V26K are not new ones for me but the others are. V47NT in India was the loudest of all but he went QRT after I called a few times. Only one DX station (PZ5W) was working split which made that one easy to bag but the other ones were simplex so I had to go slightly off freq to make my 5 watts heard.
