Only had a very small amount of time. Lots of things to do unfortunately.

Bands were in terrible shape!
Hope i gave Scotland Mult to the guys worked.

Good luck and thanks to contest organizers and sponsors.

I have to go back a long way to find a weekend with bands as dead as they were
on Saturday. Few signals heard, and even fewer working in the contest.

Hoping WPX CW will light up the ionosphere next weekend.

Condx from NA were very poor for QRP, so I decided to go QRO with the IC-706.
Rig: IC-706MKIIG & 80W; Ant: 50+ end-fed long wire quasi-vertical up ~40
Ft. w/LDG RT-100 remote. Always a pleasure to participate in the contest of Su
Majestad El Rey de España. 73 de Jose VA3PCJ.

I heard Spain but Spain did not hear me, except for a handful. Got up two hours
until end of contest. Same band conditions.

This was another last minute remote operation from NX6T in Fallbrook,
Ca. (aka "NashVille"), although I was in the SF Bay Area at the

Everything checked out before hand except I didn't check WINKEY's keying of the
radio; which I discovered (at 12:05z) it could not do as the COM4 serial port
was out and no one for miles available to see if the cable fell out or if there
was some other problem.

The solution was macro/keyboard keying by the RCForb remote access software.
After awhile I became comfortable enough with jumping between the VNC viewer
screen (to log under N1MM+)and RCForb to key the transmitter.

I purposely ran increasing amounts of high power to verify a new air
conditioning system for the shack was working properly.
When it gets too hot STN-1's Toshiba laptop overheats and shuts itself off.
This weekend after rebooting the laptop (in a hopeless attempt to revive COM4),
the computer itself operated flawlessly; although I can't necessarily make that
claim about the operator.

I loved hearing all the EA stations. I only wish there had been 5X as many.
40 meters was WIDE OPEN to Spain, so the lack of Spanish participation
surprised me.
