Late start due to station fouling, and never found the groove. Good conditions
on 80 m and 160 m.

I got involved with preparing for a future club presentation and woke up at 9:35
to realize I was missing something.

After a modest effort in the 160 test last weekend, tonightI set up the loading
coil for 160 and managed my first 3 NS QSOs on that band. As in the 160 test, I
heard a lot more guys there than I worked.

At least I optimized my QSO/MULT ratio!

Hope to have some propagation to work you all in the 10 meter test this

Condx decent on the bands that were open. Actually had a rare decent start, but
swooned a bit in the middle and never got the usual burst at the end. N8EA and
I finally made it on 4 bands, 40 let us down.

Still trying to get use to the latch feature of my SO2R box. I know I responded
on the wrong radio a couple of times and missed others calling. Think I will go
back to split audio and save the latch feature for 2nd day of a dx contest.

Missing some regulars tonight but still good activity on a cold night and I
appreciate you guys getting on for the fun!

I had everything set up at 0155Z and went out to buy a Japanese o-bento (box
lunch). When I got back at 0228Z (cutting it too close) the Winkey was not
working. This happens recently when the computer hibernates and restarting
usually fixes this, but today for some reason it took three restarts. I worked
a couple of stations with my mini paddle while waiting for the computer. (I
wonder how many hours in my life I have waited for computers to restart.) I
gotta figure out what the problem is. Too bad because condx were pretty good
K6MR   Single Op LP   9182017-12-08 03:21:02
Weird night: called by WA4JYX who had no idea what we were doing. So a 3 minute
NS Q... then had one keyboard go dead. No ladder, no problem.
K4BAI   Single Op LP   1,4622017-12-08 03:32:21
20M almost dead at the start. Did hear K7SV and W4OC before the start, but
neither could hear me 40 and 80 were quite good tonight. Got to 160 too late
get more QSOs and mults there, but could hear pretty well. Thanks for all QSOs
and hope to work many of ou in ARRL 10M contest this weekend. 73, John, K4BAI.

Broken right hand little finger with 3 pins in it and a cast over it and my ring
finger made sending and logging a bit tougher. That's also why I missed last
week, was still coming out of anesthesia after the surgery to put pins in and
cast on.
N6ZFO   Single Op LP   1,0152017-12-08 05:53:43
20 was open 20 mins before the start, but nothing at the opening bell of NS.

Major QLF: my NE Beverage crosses our road as it winds up the hill. About 8
months ago a support tree fell, and i've since ran the wire across the road at
the surface. I had elevated it for the 160 test, but didn't get it high
enough, so undid a connection earlier in the week and forgot to re-connect and
raise it. Wondered why signals were mostly, but not entirely, better on the
Zepp! I had inspected and re-strung the antenna prior to ARRL 160; falling
trees had ripped it off the terminating ground rod. So it now works well when

Contemplating the dates for the next ladder competition.

K3/10 at 5 watts to an 88' dipole up 45' fed with ladder line and Matchbox
tuner. Had 5 minutes to join in after returning home from grandkids' Christmas
Program. Thanks to N3SD and W1NN for the Q's ! C U next time, 73, Dan
