Score is composite IN-7QP-NE. Still using N1MM Classic so couldn't log mults
correctly. Let the log checkers figure it all out.

No idea of actual score as I did 4 QSO parties this weekend.
Special shout out to Mel, KJ9C and an impressive mobile signal - even on 80m.

Antennas for Radio 1:
10m = A3S
15m = Wire 5el K1WA/K3LR SVDA (100% parasitic + homebrew)
20m = Wire + Aluminum 4-square (Comtek)
40m = Wire 4-square in the trees (Comtek)
80m = Wire 4-square in the trees (Comtek)
160m = Wire 2-el array of inverted L’s in the trees (Comtek w/ homebrew

Didn't hear a whole lot of stations, but nice to work a few in the INQP.

Had lots of fun on this one. Was able to leverage 3 contests at once this
WQ6X(@W7AYT)   Single Op LP   842017-05-07 19:51:17
This was another WQ6X multi-contest event from W7AYT's QTH in Concord Ca.
I ran a Yaesu FT-1000mp into a CH-250 Vertical and a Cobra drooping dipole,
often run in parallel for better signal enhancement. Running SO2-V helped
up the QSO rate somewhat.
You can read more about this in an upcoming WQ6X contest BLOG entry.

Stay Tuned.

We just did not have much propagation into Indiana during the contest. When we
finally started hearing a few stations in Indiana, most were hunting and
pouncing for QSOs from the 7 land and New England parties. Then we had a long
power outage which caused an issue with the logging program. This was not our
best effort but there is always next year.
W9SMC(@W9AZ)   M/S HP   93,4802017-05-08 08:37:26
Good to be back after missing last year!
Conditions very poor. Couldn't get much going on 20
meters. 40 was up and down. 80 in the evening was good
and the noise level was low in spite of the relentless rains.
Still, a fun event! Thanks for all the Q's!

K4BAI   Single Op HP   5,8302017-05-08 15:33:26
FT1000MP, Alpha 78, 1 KW, TH6DXX, dipole, inverted vee. Activity seemed higher
than in previous years with very good mobile coverage. 20M was too long most
of the time, but the lower bands were quite good. Thanks for the QSOs. 73,
John, K4BAI.

It was a fun weekend working the interlaced qso parties. Due to the 7th area
qso party I used /7 on my call. Thanks for the qso's

Sure would be a lot more action if the W9 states consolidated all their QSO
parties and made it a 9QP Contest.....

Didn't get as much time to operate as I'd hoped. Glad to provide the NC
multiplier to some IN stations.
