Another fun PA QSO Party. This is my fourth in a row, all as a rover. Thank you to all the organizers, volunteers, sponsors, and bonus station operations; and of course especially to Mike Coslo. I was able to follow my plan pretty closely, and got a nice pileup almost every time I was able to find a band spot to call CQ. Didn’t start too well with an intermittent RF problem, but replaced the cable from radio to amp and all was good again; was an anxious feeling having a major glitch at the first location. My first stop was CMB; had I known how rare it turned out to be, I would have stayed longer. Only heard one county line station, usually get several. I didn’t discover my computer time was horribly wrong for a few hours, took a lot of log massaging afterwards to correct it. Activated FUL, HUN, and FRA on Saturday night using different locations from last year that took a lot less time to get to. My score went up hugely compared to last year, mostly due to being more aggressive about calling CQ more and S&P less. Didn’t even try the CW bands since I can only S&P CW. Got a call from KG4WV in Guantanamo Bay, but it’s not a section multiplier! I activated 3 parks in the World Wide Flora and Fauna program while in BED, PER, DAU; some of my WWFF friends helped me out throughout the contest. Looking forward to having a better and permanent mobile ham station for the next PAQP.
