Lots of high and lows this time. 15 was open at the bell, so I started there instead of staying on the money band - 20 meters. As K5WA said, if you miss the boat in the early hours, it's over. Couldn't get too motivated after the slow start. Had lots of band noise on 40 and 80 causing me to ask for lots of repeats. In fact, 80 was better than 40 here. Late Sunday afternoon I was still missing NNY, PR and VI. When N6EE appeared on 40 there was such a huge pileup the op got frustrated and QRTed before many of us could work him. Can't seem to get my mind/body in condition for the late Saturday P.M. start. But on the plus side, I did invest in a better chair and didn't move out of it for 8 hours at one stretch. Hard to imagine the effort it takes to do this with QRP, but their are plenty of guys doing it with some really outstanding signals. Who needs a KW? ME! thanks to all for the Qs and fun!
