I knew this would be a part time effort -- but even so, I'm pleased with the results. I really notice the difference between a year old Skyhawk tribander at 55 ft and a 20 year old A4S at 25 ft! Without room for a beverage on my acre and a half I'd like to thank K9AY for designing his loop. I'm certain it gave me a dozen or more contacts on 40 thru 160. Funniest thing that happened was in the last ten minutes of the contest. While S&P I heard a station ask C6AWL to QSY from 80 to 40 meters. I already had him on 80 but needed him on 40 too, so I listened to the conversation to see where they were going. The first station gave him the frequency (which had broadcast interference) and left without giving his call sign. C6AWL didn't want to leave unless he knew who to call, so I said I'd talk with him and off we went. I found him slightly down the band from the meeting frequency. After our brief contact I heard another station ask C6AWL to move since he was interfering with a nearby QSO so I don't think the original station ever connected and I ended up with the contact and multiplier on 40! Thanks for QSYing C6AWL. Had my first experience at being on the receiving end of a 10 to 20 station pile up for about 15 minutes on 20 mtrs. Not sure why SC was so hard to get since I heard several SC stations on the air. I'm glad it happened, but I'm not very good at that yet. If you were trying to work me thanks for your patience. Rate meter climbed to 193 for a short time. I need better 40, 80, and 160 antennas. Thanks to all. N4XL
