What an experience. Got to try out both the SAL30 RX antenna and the W5JAW-designed shunt-fed tower TX antennas in a real test over some extended conditions. Both work very well, but probably not at a world-class level, but both are perfect for me! What a rush in the 160 meter contest! I would not have the interest and stamina to stay with this most of the time, but this was a lot of fun since the station not plays pretty well on Top Band. Of course I ran into reality when going up against K5NA, N5AW, and K5AND here in town. But all in all, what a blast! Missed PAC, NT, NL, and PR. Heard a VO1 once working a station on S&P but that was it. The contact with KL7SB was thrilling as he called with a "tortured signal." Heard him CQing Sunday morning early with a much better signal. Least worked sections were: Two contacts: Snj, Mb, EwWa, Sb, Ri, Ab, WTx. One Contact: Wy, Nd, NNy, Ak. Didn't hear much DX, and certainly no "wide open" conditions, but perhaps I missed the openings. Did work: XE, PJ2, ZF, C6, EA, DL, JA, CM, F, and G. All in all, a lot of fun with some serious slogging. Thanks to all for the contacts. Jim N3BB
