Deep QSB made it difficult at times to get the exchange across, but it sure was
fun to see this much activity on a normally "dead" band.

Thanks for the Q's!

This was a short contest as the Solar gods kept the opening on 10 meters to a
minimun. There was good activity from many of the stateside guys that we could
not work. My first QSO was africa after tuning for 2 hours from the start time.
Then Pourto rico, and the band began to come alive if you can call 25qs per hour
a good rate,I did manage to run 31 in one of the 60 minuite periods. The guys
were great and I operated in a leisure style visiting with my friends in SA. I
hope that this can be turned into a Annual event so we can foster a larger
group of hams from south of the border participating in our major events as
well as this one. Usually our trans equatorial propo has a better showing than
this one. there was about a 3 hour window that I was hearing every thing from
Nicuragua to Chile with great signals. I hope to try this one again next year.
It was a well organized event and the scoring system WELL THOUGHT OUT. ALTHOUGH
i HAVE FIGURED MY SCORE 4 TIMES AND NEVER GOT THE SAME RESULT. Nimm did not have
a template for this one. Maybe next time. I spent at least an hour getting it
correct and I'm still not sure? As the cycle declines it may have to be run on
more than one band and include all the contest bamds. That would make it a
competative event. Just my thoughts WA5FWC

This was another ad Hoc contest event from NX6T In Fallbrook Ca. (aka
"Nashville"). Unfortunately, we had a shortage of operators so it
became a 2 operator affair. We setup STN#1 for remote control access so WQ6X
could operate from Alameda (in the SF bay area) allowing N6KI to run STN#2 from
the shack.
Both stations sported Elecraft K3 radios into ACOM 2000 amplifiers.
Antennas were C-31XL and STEPP-IR yagis; both about 40' high.
While the atmospheric noise was low, stations popped in and out quickly.
By the time 00:00z arrived 10 meters in Fallbrook was gone.
