but no CWT. Then over to 14 MHz. F6HKA F5MNK IT9MUO... 7X3DA heard... A dozen
known European calls heard at scatter level, Hi-Power would work to get
--- Back to 7 MHz at mid-CWT. LY8O UA6HZ IK0IXI IT9MUO worked... SD1A and SE5L
at scatter level... Strong signals from G0MGM G3XTT and G4NVR, but only the
first one worked... Cheers/73, Zaba OH1ZAA

Okay - blew out the amp. last weekend running RTTY in the Russian Digital
Contest. Got home late and missed most of the 1900Z session (missed all of
the 1300Z session). However, the bands seemed to be in good shape and, as
always, lots of activity. Still had a great time LP S&Ping rather than HP
CQing as usually my CWT op:>)

Not a record but one of my better scores! Thanks for the Qs. 20 was steady and
had a nice run and then it just stopped at about 60 Q at the half hour. Then
40 meters took me over the 100 mark. Hope to cu at 0300. Next week I plan to
be at a campground in Oklahoma with 100 watts and wires (in a Canyon).

Went to the gym and added 50 ft of rope to each end of the 40 inverted vee so it
would be flatter and the SWR improved. Started on 20. West coast was loud, but
not many on. Almost no signals from the east. Went to 40 at 19:20 with very
few QSOs and mults! IT was early, but eventually rate picked up. N1LN was

Got off to a slow start today, but got rolling along in jig time. 20M to EU was
good agn today, not quite up to last week, but gud nonetheless. 40M was hopping
agn with VEs sprinkled in for good measure.
Sadly I will miss CWT at least the next couple of weeks while helping my
Significant Other after her knee replacement surgery this coming Monday. She
lives in a condo with, you guessed it, antenna restrictions. About the only way
I could make a cross country or DX contact from there would be using DMR.
Hopefully I will rejoin the weekly fray by mid-November.
Until we meet agn, 73 es tnx for all the Qs.

Another activation of a state park for the Michigan State Parks On The Air
(MSPOTA). Kal-Haven Trail State Park is a multi-use Trail, Foot, Bicycle, and

Got set up by a few minutes after 1830Z, but the wind blew the antenna down, so
I didn't get fully operational until a few minutes before 1900Z. But,
conditions were ideal - low RF noise, S-1 to S-3, good propagation, and enough
activity at the outset to net 18 contacts in the first 30 minutes.

With this number in the bag I ceased operating, went to 30 meters to see if I
could find a friend on another park, but found N4A operating as part of the
NAQCC birthday celebration.

I cut the effort short because a friend was selling a pristine Heathkit HW-9
transceiver and accessories, and wanted to culminate the deal at 2230Z back in
Grand Rapids. I "lost" my HW-9 to a friend who promised to fix a
receiver problem, so this is a suitable replacement.

Again, I found that "running" was possible, probably at least 50% of
the contacts resulted from "running." It's comforting to know that
my QLF with my trusty J-38 @ 16 to 18 WPM and a marginal strenght setup can
actually "run" with the big guns!

Thanks to all who pulled my pipsqueak signal out of the mud.
