K3CCR is the club station at the Collington continuing-care retirement community at FM 18OW in MD, just east of DC. It was clear that 2017 WPX SSB would be part-time for us. W3GB planned to be away for the weekend, and besides non-radio priorities N3UM was away from the 0Z start till 15Z Sat. Starting then he tried and could not run, but got 72 Qs in 1.5 hr C&P (Click & Pounce on spots) for 48/hr on 20 and 15 m. After lunch N3UM got brief runs on 20 m. for 24 QSOs plus 32 more C&P in 1.4 hr. After supper till bedtime 40 m was good for 110 Qs, 54 of them 00-01Z, the best hr. yet, 1/2 running. Got 41 Qs on 80 m.; about half were 6-pointers. Sum. AM 14-16Z N3UM got 52 Qs on 20, all but 13 C&P. In 3 hr. Sun. PM he got one good run on 20 m, 67 Qs in 1 hr 1750-1850Z, plus 70 more C&P, 14 of those on 15 m. Then W3GB came in, unexpected; he had caught an early plane. He took over for a last 2 hr. on 20 to go over 500 Qs and over 500 K claimed score. We were pleased with that since we were only able to get on for 13.2 hrs. total.
