K3-100 / KPA500 amp and inverted L antenna with 8 elevated radials ~ 600 watts output What a fun time during the time I was on. Some nice rate on Friday but slowed down quite a bit on Saturday night. Took some off time during some prime hours on Friday night to take my wife to dinner and Saturday to watch the Ohio State - Wisconsin football game. Might have done even better and made it to 1000 QSOs if I was operating during those hours. Good conditions to EU on Friday night. Not as good on Saturday. I actually had some EU stations answer my CQ's which is rare for me. Set alarm to get up around 7:30 AM Sunday morning after a couple hour nap to see if I could snag a KL7 or KH6 at sunrise. Just my luck when I turned on the radio there was KL7SB on the frequency I was on when I had turned off the radio. Worked Steve and started tuning low in the band to see if I could hear any JA stations. JA3YBK was very loud and called him and got thru. My first JA from my home station since I moved to Georgia in 2003. Heard one other JA call someone but didn't hear any others CQing in the JA window. Wishing all my contesting friends a happy holiday season... Jeff KU8E
