I love CQ WW CW, but due to family considerations and the U.S. Thanksgiving holiday, I rarely get to operate more than a few hours from my parents' place in Ohio or from W8AV. I kicked around SOSB efforts, but eventually decided on the new CLASSIC overlay for familial constraints that will become clear in a moment. My wife, who is a librarian, had to work in the afternoons this weekend, leaving me on daddy duty. Mercifully, our 2-year-old still takes a substantial nap in the afternoon, but I was limited on my ability to run Europeans. We recently moved to a new QTH (in October) and I hastily erected some antennas for the many DXpeditions and contests in November. I do not have SO2R working yet, and it's a small miracle that the hexagonal beam hasn't lifted off and landed somewhere between CU and VP9 with the winds. And, I blew up the receive port on my K3, I think. So, I had no Beverages on the second night. Enough excuses. This was FUN! Thanks to everyone who goes to rare and exotic locations or makes a special effort to get on to work us zone 3/4/5/14/15/16/25 ops.
