Primary ops per band - 160: KH6U, KH7U 80: N2NL 40: KH6SH 20: WH6R, N2NL 15: WH7W, N2NL 10: KH6FP, WH7W Thanks again to Alex for allowing all of us to operate from his beautiful station above Pipeline Beach on the North Shore. A lot of work continues to be expended to maintain the station, with lots of volunteer hours by KH7U and KH6U especially. K7NV and K7PN left Saturday after assisting with the installation of a new 2el 80m beam which replaces an older one which turned out to be just a little too big for the environment. The new beam was raised into place by helicopter just a couple hours before the contest started. This was the first time live scoring was used, to share information in a head-to-head M/M battle against our good friends on the Big Island, Lloyd and crew @ KH6LC. This really increased the competitiveness of both teams in a region where direct competition is difficult due to vast distances and limited activity in the Pacific. There was not an unfilled seat all weekend as everyone tried their hardest to contribute their best. Everyone had so much fun. This definitely won't be the last time we do this. Rain is relatively common this time of year in Hawaii. Thunderstorms are rare. This weekend both KH6J and KH6LC were heavily affected by both. At KH6J, we had clear skies the first day but we could hear the static crashes from storms overhead at KH6LC. The second day was Oahu's turn with house-shaking thunder in the very early morning hours during NA sunrise and again later in the morning through the end of contest. We never shut down for lightning but there was some pucker factor. KH6SH warned everyone "Don't lick the amplifiers!" during the worst of it early Sunday morning. Static would build to S9+++ before the snap flash of lightning and then quickly build again. Apologies for some alligator ears the 2nd day as we tried pulling partial calls out from between the crashes. Oahu remains under a flash flood warning tonight. Again, thanks to everyone for all the QSOs, and a warm Aloha to the awesome team at KH6LC who really made this into a special weekend. For the team, 73, Dave N2NL/KH6
