K3, TL-922A, TH6XX, Sloping Vees (80 & 40), N1MM+ Part-time only. Many interruptions but tried my best to get a sweep. Couldn't locate PR although I know that there was at least one on the air as I heard KH7XS work him as his first contact at 2100Z on 15 meters. Surprisingly there were several NNY, WTX, NE, RI, DE, SD stations on. All of the sections that I missed in the CW test (NNY, NT) I had worked in the first few hours of the test. At first I did S&P but a few hours in I began to run. Trying to run in B class was a challenge as an hour into test a Polhyphaser protector in the antenna line failed which caused the amp to be contrary on full power. Ran at about half power (500 Watts) through rest of test. All in all this was a fun test. As such I approached it with less stress. I even took about a half hour to chat with my old friend JA3USA who called through the melee on 20 meters. Mac was not with the Itallians at J5T this time because of family concerns, so it was great to be able to chat with him at home. Great to see 20 open to the Far East. Thanks to all who called and provided a QSO. There is no doubt some had good ears to be able to pick my callsign out of the mess. Great fun. 73, Russ K0VXU
