STATION W8QZA: Radio: Elecraft K-2, 5 Watts. Antennas: 10-15-20 Meters: 3 el Stepp-IR up 32 feet 40 Meters: DX-LB trap dipole up 30 feet 40-80 Meters: Butternut HF-2V Vertical with 3 radials ------------------------------------------------------ Condx were poor, of course. Only 8 Qs in South America! But this is an international contest, and my best contest Qs were A31MM, UA1CE, and F6HKA, all on 20 M. Getting into Europe was quite a surprise for me. With QRP from out here on the west coast, Europe has become very tough! My DXCC was 18 compared to 51 only 2 years ago! N1MM says my op time was only 10.2 hours, but that doesn't count all the time I spent tuning with no Qs!! I won #1 QRP in North America and a very nice plaque the first year that this contest was opened up for North America. But I have never come close to doing that since then. Ops have discovered what a great contest this is! 73, .....Bill Parker W6QU - W8QZA
