K3CCR is the club station at the Collington continuing-care retirement community at FM 18OW in MD, just east of DC. For the 2018 ARRL SSB DX only I (N3UM) was available, and I was away over Fri. night. So, I did SOHP Unlimited for 12.3 hr. From 1752-1900Z Sat. I got 55 Qs and 28 mults on 20m, clicking every spot plus tuning. Most were EUs but some NA, and even a KL7. Tried twice to run on 20, got < 10 QSOs. In the next 3 hr 19-22Z I got 33 Qs and 13 mults on 20m. and 35 Qs and 29 mults on 15m, hopping between 2 chairs when one bandmap had more or better spots. After a supper break I worked 2 bands again 0100-0430Z, this time 40 and 80m, and got 63 Qs and 33 mults on 40m, 38 Qs and 32 mults on 80m, and just 2 Qs and mults on near-dead 160m. Sun. AM after 1505Z I got 44 Qs and 16 mults total in 1.6 hr. clicking 15 and 20 m. spots. After lunch at 1906Z I finally ran briefly but well on 20m, 50 Qs in 42 min. for 70/hr. Also got a good short run on 40 m. at 2120Z, 42 Qs in 31 min. for 80/hr. I quit at 2205Z when rates tanked. I worked 83 distinct countries on all bands. Surprised at 15 m., propagation better than forecast; got 7 EU ctys. on 15. Found few distant mults, but did get JA on 20 and KH6 on 40, 20, and 15m.
