Good runs at times, averaging 77Q's per hour (for me, that's good...). Even though I was running higher power this year (300-400W), I was still getting crowded out by "bigger guns" to the south. Especially one high power W that was at least 10kHz wide, just above my CQ spot on 80M. Another ham in my town confirmed that signal was so wide, he had to tune 10kHz away to get away from his "broadband" signal. Fortunately, that was the only signal I could complain about, everyone else seemed to at least check their amps or signals... Back to SS, missed PR, kind of obvious, and ND, which is no surprise either. What I also missed was WCF, go figure that one out... Anyway, still had fun this year though bands seemed to be poor, 40M was almost a lost cause, partially because my antenna has high SWR above 7.1Mhz (my fault...). 15M was ok on the start on Saturday, not as good on Sunday. 20M was ok throughout, second best band for me. 80M was the workhorse, over 1/2 my contacts, and the most sections, were on 80M. Till next year. Steve K3/AL-811 amp @ 300W th3-jr beam 40/80 inv-v N1MM+
