Toughest conditions I can remember. I fooled N1MM+ into thinking I took time off, just because I couldn't be heard for more than a half hour several times. Still, it was fun, and I coped with the frustration of 7 QSO's per hour, hour after hour. It was great to hear a lot of other Mad River folks on the air, but conditions made it sound like there was almost no participation. Thanks for the QSO's, and to all who listened hard to hear me. Believe me, I was surprised how often I was listening hard, too. 72 to all de kt8k - Tim station equipment: - Tentec Orion, MFJ Grandmaster Memory Keyer with Bencher BY-1 paddle - XP laptop running N1MM+ (and nothing else!) - homebrew RS-232 to keying interface (thanks Dan KB6NU - catch his blog!) Antennas: - 20/40/80m multi-wire dipole at 30 feet, fed with RG8x - 40/80m wire vertical fed with TV twin lead and LDG Z-11 autotuner, feed point at 12 feet above ground, 2 radials per band Thanks for enjoying my ham radio (and other) songs: "I Want a Big Tower" https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uNWZjzrzgwA "If You Ain't Runnin', You Ain't Winnin'" https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uNWZjzrzgwA All this and more at www.youtube.com/themandolinmaniac "I LIVE for those hits!"
