Audio drop outs on the remote link were too bad to continue so early to bed.
Getting a new ISP next week to resolve the problem.

First CWT of 2017!

Lots of wind here and very cold outside - causing some kind of antenna
problems. Pretty drained today so was so mentally sharp.

40 just fair. Stayed there too long. 80 much better, but lots of static with

Another fun time and a quick hour.

Thanks for the Qs - except for that W9 station that jumped on my 80 mtr CQ
frequency and claimed it was his after I called QRL with no response and then I
made 20 Qs there.

One of my better 03Z results, after a slow start. 40 stank, but 80 and 160 were
quite good. Probably should have gone to 160 sooner, but calls kept coming on
80, and almost every one was a mult. Lots of new calls.

Thanks and CU next week!

Will be /0 from Pagosa Springs Colorado the next two weeks - no big scores from
there but always interesting from a different location.

Late start. Bands fairly quiet, even though we are getting pounded by winds and
snow. 80m antenna down (coax problem), loaded 160m ant on 80,does not seem very
effective at all. TNX for the Q's..........

80m was my best band; I even worked IT9VDQ on 80.

I ran the KPA500 at 500 watts and still found it tougher than 100 watts earlier
in the day. 40 was a struggle and I was surprised that everyone went to 160 so

session due to a 4hr power outage, high winds. Came back on right after 20z.

FT450 and a dipole. Wow condx were touch and go. Decided against 40m and stuck
with 80m as single band. Gald I did. Had lots of fun for this first CWT of 2017

Thanks to DX calls on 40m from Giu, IT9VDQ and Alf, IT9MUO.

As always, i'st terrific to twist the VFO and find my usual gang of good
Thanks for taking my calls tonight and giving me the Q.

My apologies to the few stations who called me, but whom I could not pull out
due to QSB on 40m or QRN on 80m. I had the desire, just not the ears. Wish I
had a bevy of great receive antennas that would really reach out there. Alas,
us 'little pistols' just have to use what kinked wire we have.

My challenge to you: find some non-members in your log, then reach out to them
as a CWOps recruit. Let's push toward #1800.

When I did the 1900Z run I put down as 1300Z which was in error, and was unable
to get it corrected, so I only did the 1900z and 0300z runs this time, will
check closer next time before I submit my score!

I copied the number of mults and the total score from N1MM+'s Score Summary
window. I don't know whether these values are correct.

This was my first CWT at 0300Z. It was fun. I was pleasantly surprised to
find activity on 160 m, and to work DL on both bands.

on 160M about 15 minutes before 0300Z and something is wrong with the antenna,
tuner, or hook up to them and it won't work at all. Hope I can get that
repaired soon. 20M was dead at the start. 40M wasn't very good, but was
better than last week. 80M was better than 40. A few Europeans on both bands.

running great, objective was to do entire hour in run mode.

started at exactly 0300 banging away cqing since the start - totally clear freq
never changed frequency/moved or called even one station S&P.

all was well until N1LN came up just on top of me about 180 hz, called
"QRL?" one time (which was a nice gesture), but waited only 500ms
and started banging away CQ. he couldn't have possibly really made any real
effort to ACTUALLY listen... it was just a faux QRL call for appearances only.

Obviously, he had his RX filters in their narrowest mode, and never bothered to
tune around even a tiny bit after the QRL call and his xmtr dropped. that is
just ignorant.

no reason for that when there is another 50khz open to use. He just wanted the
3835 spot in the band I guess. I'm a little pistol, with wires only, so I
normally just move aside. But this arrogance really burned me, so the war was
on until one of us gave up, and I wasn't going to.

apologies to others who may have heard this fiasco. I probably lost nearly 10m
in this crapola.
