K3CCR is the club station at the Collington continuing-care retirement community at FM 18OW in MD, just east of DC. N3UM and W3GB enjoyed doing Multi-1 in the 12/17 Stew Perry. Pretty good propagation, 19 EU QSOs in 11 EU countries, and a fair number of W6, W7, and VE7 Qs. Not quite as good as the 31 EU Qs in 14 EU countries we got in the 2016 Stew; there was QSB and signals were weak, but no complaints. Some years there are no EU or US west-coast QSOs on 160. We started at 2120Z and got 44 Qs in 40 min, then 55 in the next hour. OK QSO rates, but only 67 and then 88 points, since mostly 1 or 2 pts/Q. First EU, an F, came at 2345Z, then 18 more EUs at 10-16 points each till 0637 QRT. In the 02, 03, and 04 hrs. we got 122, 128, and 124 points from only 44, 46, and 14 QSOs. No EUs 05-06Z, but we got 117 points with US west-coast stations at 6-9 points each plus a KH6 for 16 points! Got the last 4 EUs and 97 points 06-0640 Z.
