Activation of KFF-4134 Kaskaskia State Fish and Wildlife Area in Illinois- ND9E

ND9E successfully activated KFF-4134 with 46 contacts made. Once I was setup I checked the noise level and was surprised with only a S2-S3 noise level on 20m. The lake I was at is a cooling lake for the Baldwin power plant so I was concerned that the noise level would be high. So I started on 20 meters and quickly put 31 phone contacts in the log. I switched to 40 meter phone and had a tougher time getting contacts. Noise level was slightly higher but only S5. I know towards my last few contacts that lightning crashes were starting up somewhere in the country. There were 2 park to park contacts made. Logs were uploaded to WWFF and POTA. 

This activation appears to be the first one for WWFF and the second for POTA. 

Here is a map made showing my contacts. It is made with the website DYIMAPS.COM.
