80 meters outpaced 20 for the first time here. The CW weekend proved that the 80 meter 4-square doesn't cut it in a domestic contest, so up went a high dipole off the 100 ft tower that paid off. 20 meters had some funny anomalies from no runs on Saturday during a slow start to highly productive runs on Sunday. 40 meters was the usual workhorse. High winds on Sunday forced a short shutdown to allow parking the tower (it rotates) in a safer direction before the winds calmed down. Conducted several on-the-air educational seminars of "SS exchange 101" to recent licensees. Though slowing down the rate, it was rewarding in good will in nurturing new contesters. It's all part of the game. How about a little more humor during the contest? During Q#1066 I often mention the Battle of Hastings...there are others I'm sure. What's the appropriate comment for Q #807? You thought the exchange was long? Does anyone remember when it included the time/date of the Q to mirror the radiogram message format? Ugh!
