100 W, K3, dipoles up 20-30'. I ran into issues throughout the contest. Started putting antennas up for 40/15 m and 20 m at contest start. The 20 m antenna tuned weirdly, and I soon found it was damaged beyond repair. After remaking the antenna in a couple hours, I was back on the air for a while. There seemed to be some RFI issues on 40 m, too, particularly on SSB. I wasn't able to track down exactly what was going on or get it completely resolved. Better station grounding is likely in the future. Almost all of Sunday was lost due to some natural gas issues in the shack and getting those resolved. I wished I'd set up the 10 m antenna, even though it would've taken away from contest time. Despite the setbacks, propagation was good and activity was high. There were lots of stations to work, and they came in pretty easily. Thanks for the QSOs and KB!
