Huge thanks to Lloyd, KH6LC for allowing me to come over to his tropical paradise and play radio. This was sort of a last minute thing for me due to a heavy work schedule and many balls in the air as it were, but wonderful to see great friends Lloyd, Rob (NH6V) and Curt (AH6RE). Thanks for all the QSOs! As so many have said, conditions sucked. It was almost creepy to be on for a whole weekend from a killer station and almost never hear a single peep from Europe on any band. The one big exception was a fantastic greyline longpath opening on 40M that lasted 2+ hours as it passed from zone 21 over to zone 14. That was something I won't soon forget. The station, after some redesign with antenna placement since earlier in the year, played exceptionally well. I always felt loud. I had brought over a SO2R box that was untested and didn't have it hooked up until just before the contest. Even though there were issues with the box and interconnects, all ended up working better than expected. No equipment failures to speak of! More filtering, antennas more spread out, more fixed yagis, and lots of improvements still to come. Given conditions as they were going into the contest, I had hoped for 5000 QSOs and around 5M points, and I felt that would have been a reasonable score based on no real preparation and conditions that were less than optimal, so when the score rolled passed 5M I was happy and had a good portion of the day left. I actually slept a good deal more than planned! Radio 1: FTDX5000 + AL1500 Radio 2: FTDX3000 + AL1500 10M: 7L M2 yagi 15M: 6L M2 yagi 20M: 5L M2 yagi + KT36XA fixed on JA (StackMatched) 40M: 4L + 3L yagis (Stackmatched) 80M: 4 Square 160M: Vertical dipole It was great to talk with all of our friends around the world in the best contest of the year. Please look for KH6LC in CQWW CW (M/2)! 73 de N6GQ @ KH6LC
