K3, TL-922A, TH6DXX, N1MM+ I wasn't going to participate in this one but the urge to check 10 Meters Friday night at 0300z got me hooked. The opening to the west was great but my noise level was at S9. I finally learned how to blank the noise to S6 using the audio from the external sound card and the LP-PAN2 panadapter. Still, it was a challenge to copy the very weak signals. Ended the night with about 45 Q's and 29 mults. I worked every state in 7-land except for WY (and AK). Saturday was a bust. Hardly any signals to copy. Mostly locals who felt sorry for me. Sunday morning at daybreak I spent about 45 minutes before church and worked several Q's as well as mults. Sunday after church found another several Q's and mults but had to knock off to help N9GB erect a 7 element 40-30 beam on top of a 80 foot tower. I couldn't stay to watch the 11 element JK tribander go up on top as my wife was singing in the chruch's Christmas cantada and that took preference. So, I don't feel so bad about 133 Q's. From the reports I've heard there must have been openings that I missed. K3PA said he worked a KH6 and a ZL Friday evening around 0100z. Oh well, there is always next solar cycle....uhhh maybe. At my age the next one almost has to be next year. Thanks to ALL of you who were patient with me as I struggleed to copy callsigns. Sorry that there were many I just coulnd't copy through my noise. Very Merry Christmas and a very Happy New Year! 73, Russ - K0VXU
