Was excited running my new FTdx5000 in my first 160 meter contest. It performed above my expectations. However Murphy did not leave me alone this year. Abruptly at 0543Z on the second night (thankfully) my amplifier quit working. I suspect a relay is shot. I had no spare amplifier available to plug in and continue so I called it at 0543Z. BUMMER was having a great time. Worked all sections but PR. Probably no low band antennas survived the storm season from there. NNY was my last section to be worked. Conditions were pretty fair. Even though I have a new noise source to the NW I still managed to work almost 50 JA the first morning. Wish I would have had morning 2! The signals were stronger from EU on the second night. I did work some new mults before the amplifier broke but sure I could have worked several more. Now I hear it from the grapevine that Santa may put a new Expert 2K FA under the tree. Thanks for the Q's. 73 Dave WD5COV Rig FTdx5000 Ant full size 4 SQ Rec Ant 5 800ft Bev
