Friday night started well, but Murphy came calling: At 0115 UTC my rotator jammed pointing 330, where it stayed the rest of the contest. Still, when the band shut down I had 304 Qs in the log. Saturday I finished assembling my 2nd 10M antenna and installed it at 55 ft pointing NE. So I now had 2 "fixed" antennas, NE and NW. They played pretty well, actually. I worked a fair number of of S. Am. off the back of the NW, and some Oceana off the back of the NE. Don't think I will stay in this configuration, though, but it was effective when running stations to be able to change direction by simply switching antennas. I am a believer. After I get the rotator down, repaired, and up again, improvement plans call for a fixed antenna at about 40 ft pointing 130. In this contest, I worked NWT, S. Korea, and China for the first time. Overall it was fun, but I sure would have liked to have those hours back I spent getting a 2nd antenna up on Saturday!
