This was a very part time effort for me due to having to wait on a tow truck in Northern Virginia at the start of the contest. So I didn't get home till around 10pm. So I did not actually log my first contact until almost 9am Saturday morning. While working the contest I spent time surfing the web to see what could potentially be the reason why my F350 diesel would not start **ugh**. I have had a Shakespeare ABS-1600 vertical laying around that I decided Saturday afternoon to set up and leaned it against one of the dogwood trees. I was surprised at how well it performed for a ground level tree leaning vertical. I tried to establish a run a few different times but to only work 2 or 3 stations. So most of my QSOs were S&P. I only operated for a few hours Sunday morning until 11AM when I had to put on my mechanic hat again and work the truck and commuter car that was sitting in the garage also requiring work. It was nice to get "you have a booming signal" report from some European stations with my current station configuration. Just wish I had more time to enjoy the propagation and a fun contest. Looking forward to improving my score next year with a great BIC commitment. Station: Icom IC-756 Classic, Cushcraft A4S @ 20ft, Shakespeare ABS-1600 (Green "Big Stick"), Buckmaster 135ft Off Center Fed Dipole @ 45ft, Cushcraft AP8A Vertical @ 2ft (disconnected to use coax for Big Stick) and 160M Inverted-V @ 45ft.
