I'm just getting started using N1MM plus (three contests, 919 Qs so far) so I'm still learning, but it really didn't seem to give me any problems in this contest, things went well. I made a reasonable number of contacts for the effort I expended. Propagation seemed good, and I had a good time running, even with low power. I probably could have spent some more time, but I stayed BIC while I was enjoying it, and left when it slowed down and got boring. (In addition, some unexpected company, my son and grandkids, arrived on Sunday and took over my attention...:-)) I expected to have trouble on 10 meters, I've lost the connection, it seems, to my antenna switching relay box on the tower that switches feedlines between the 17-, 12- and 10-meter elements on the quad, but such was not the case, the 20-meter quad element performed surprisingly well when loaded on 10 meters through the Ten-Tec 238C tuner. Maybe I should have tried up there a little sooner, I might have got a few more contacts. Rig: Elecraft K3 w/P3 100 watts Ant: 3 el quad, 204-foot G5RV, 40-meter inverted vee Software: N1MM Plus v1.0.5472.0
