This is the first time I really had an opportunity to play in the FQP. With low power and very modest antennas, it was not a runfest for me, but I was able to generate about 20 QSOs per hour by staying in the chair and pushing the F1 key. Living in a deed restricted community makes it difficult to put up decent antennas, but I was able to keep a 40M inverted vee at 28 feet up for the whole weekend without any complaints (yet). For 20M I used my SteppIR SmallIR vertical. I haven't operated a CW contest seriously since K2PS and I did the WPX contest from Montserrat in 2015, so this weekend provided a great opportunity for me to reacquaint myself with the function keys. That's a good thing because I am going to operate the WPX contest at the end of May back in Montserrat. Many thanks to all the stations who called in, and kudos to those hardworking members of the FCG who make this such a great event! 73, K2DM / SUMTER COUNTY
