Despite on fair conditions, this was a riot. Paul K1XM was visiting from MA and did the heavy lifting as guest op. It was a real pleasure to see the team put the station through its paces without any failures. We were shut down for several hours due to thunderstorms, plus a social gathering of these and other hams coincided, so we had to take a dinner break. IARU is a personal favorite, and the outcome, while modest in absolute terms, shows just what can be accomplished from Alaska in summer. A couple of observations: 80m wasn't a total bust as was anticipated. 15m was sadly dead much of the time, yet we were able to make a few QSOs into Europe after our sunset (0100 local time). The 40m dual verticals continue to impress and are far superior to the dipole at 120 feet.
