K5JAW Operating Notes, 2014 Week 13 &14 (March 23-April 5, 2014)

On The Air: 
It's been a busy couple of weeks around Station K5JAW, but very little of that busy time has been amateur radio time!  Only 42 contacts were logged in this two-week period, and most of them were for activity in various nets.  A few days out of town for work contributed to the lack of radio time.  Additionally, I've been spending evening time working on getting a small garden up and going.

For my 2014 QSO 365 project, the first three months of the year have been a great success.  396 contacts were logged in January (166), February (91), and March (139), with 16 new DXCC entries logged.  That averages out to just over 4 contacts per day, if you like running averages.  Certainly there were days with only one or two contacts, and a few days with multiple contacts.  My highest single-day tally was 35 contacts on March 1.

Are you doing a QSO 365?  Or have you considered taking up the challenge?  How are you doing so far?
