Lot of great fun! Thanks for all the Q's! I was very fortunate to work all sections, and was actually aided by the lack of my beam antenna which I was unable to put up this fall. With dipole antennas, all I could do was S & P most of the daylight hours. On Sunday this allowed me to find pileups, dig out who they were calling, and then try and get my call through. A special thanks to the last two; SB, W6RFU, and lastly ND, KD0CVZ, who actually answered my CQ on 40 mtrs at 00:20Z Sunday night. Never heard another ND the entire contest! Really a honor to use the PVRC Club call W3GRF, that was originally the call of Len Chertof, one of the PVRC founders. I used my own check of 64, which was confusing to some contesters that still had Len's check of 36 in their software program! Spoke to a number of people who knew Len....sorry I could not talk longer with you about your experiences with W3GRF. I was fortunate to have met Len when I joined the PVRC in the early 1970s. He was one of the true pioneers of contesting. Condx: FT1000MP and dipole antennas on all bands. Happy Thanksgiving to all! 73s, Gary WR3R
