Per my usual scenario my biggest problem is static background noise running 59/59+5/10 so had trouble hearing some of the weaker stations. Running Elecraft K3, Palstar HF-2500 Amp up to 1400 watts on peaks, Palstar AT5K-HP tuner, INV-L about 70-80' up over tree fed again hytower radial field of 64 65' ground radials. First night at 09:16Z T.Q's 248, T.Mults 48, Q.Pts. 589, T.Score 28,272. Felt the first night I did pretty well. Worked ZS1OK, Dave for a first time NZ! Made my night! Second night conditions less favorable. You can see the total score above and had considerable more problem hearing stations. Still have not got my Waller Flag up that I keep talking about. And so far you can not prove to me beverages (elevated or BOG) work. How can a receive antenna be any good if the background noise goes up when switched in????? Must work on reducing the receive noise and maybe I can begin to do better somehow. IILLE In 2011 I reached 59,340 points and achieved #18th US and #1 7th call area HP Assisted. So all in all I can't really complain too much. Better things I hope will come. Oh, since I was asked by a fellow ham in the area to submit with WVDXC I put it down this year.
