One operator at station K1ESE, one remote W1HIS. Murphy - Remote didn't work as well this time. Internet latency required closing non-essential software on the computers. It hurt to lose the NaP3 panadapter for the remote K3. Lost time when K1ESE forgot to switch the antenna to the remote K3 at one point. The DVK on the Flex quit working. High local noise on 15m and 10m was also a problem. You can get away with wire antennas for the higher bands (we had two doublets) in a CW contest, but not so much on SSB. Neither of us are fans of SSB contesting, but each year we have bitten the bullet for the club (YCCC). WE did better than last year, but expect everyone did. Never came close to catching K1KP. We had fun at times and there was a lot of boredom. As they say, "they can never take the experience away from you". Thanks to Joe and Mike for the use of W1OO. Turns out to be a good SSB call as well a a fine CW call. K3 for remote, Flex 6500 for local SPE Expert 1.3k amplifier, HF-Auto tuner 240' doublet, 60' doublet, both up 80'
