One contact with ship on 3922. Band condictions poor.
Lots of QRM. Ship has only one functioning antenna.
Due to 3922 being close to ARES nets traffic may have to shift + or - a few KC's. Suggest 40M may be better band. perhaps around 7.230.
I suspect the crew is very busy and may not have much free tiem during the day.
Suggestions??

CQ = To anyone out there listening...

QRM = Lots of radio activity...

DE = Signing out (followed by your personal call letters)...

79s = See you later...

sort of... but the rest of it I don't understand. I guess the jist of it is that you're moving to another frequency because of radio traffic and/or atmospheric conditions... (The fellow I spoke to on board shared all of the above... and I'll try to remember)

Somehow I don't think this will be anywhere near as easy as needle gunning....

If I know SeaBat, if she puts her mind to it, she can do it.

that if someone wants to do something, we should try... we may not always be the best at it, we may not always be the fastest, but if we can accomplish the task, THAT is what really matters. My Grandfather was an educator.. he always said that a day when we didn't learn something was a day wasted. I agree - and there are so many interesting things to learn that sometimes I'm overwhelmed and find myself going in six different directions. So, now to understand the radio lingo... Bob shared three things with me yesterday, I hope that you two will share in small doses (my mind absorbs it better that way)!

79s
Sue:
I don't know where the 79's came from..
But what I learned was 73's ( means best of everything.- good luck, ETC. )
If you want, I'm sure Bob and I can point you in the correct direction.
Would love to talk to you on the radio or in person some day.
