All S&P and first time as assisted. Every QSO was a competition with other S&P ops who simply called continuously and randomly whether the Runing Op was transmitting or listening. A nice, but tedious, way to hone pileup-busting skills. New low band antennas were made operational within the past two weeks: shunt fed towers for 80 and 160m and a full sized loop for 80m. The loop is nicely broadbanded, but for DX it lags the vertical. Both shunt fed towers are better for Tx than Rx, so the next project is a Beverage farm for a better matchup. Four of the ten possibilities for 6-band sweeps go to 6Y3M, D5A, D4C, and VE7FO. There were many 5-banders. Thanks for the mini Sweepstakes, chaps! The other competition was the attempt to break a megapoint score. With one eye on the clock and the other on the Bandmap, it was surely a race. I lost about 10 minutes trying to work OA4SS with 15 minutes and 8K or so points remaining. When he went split, I thought I had it made, but the mob quickly caught up to the QSX. I was doomed until with moments to go, I dropped down to 40m and worked a few including HD2A (a "green" double mult) to go over the top. Like paper assets, though, the score won't hold through the log checks, but tonight, it's satisfying! Many thanks to the many teams who activated the juicy DX entities--you were honey to the swarming bees! Thanks for holding up under the pressure... On to ARRL 160, even with no Beverages! 73, dan k7ia
