I visited FN13 Saturday and FN02, FN12, and FN03 on Sunday. It was not clear that I was going to make it on the road for this contest. I had a lot of work to do to get the system assembled, which led to a late start. After January I broke everything down and committed to rebuild from scratch instead of the piecemeal system I had put together over the last few years. Although I did not finish the "shelf" for 2304 and 3456, the infrastructure is in place and I expect to have it done by August or September. I added single switch transverter switching and a roof rack mounted rotor for the H-Frame, which were both very nice upgrades and the first time I have had a rotor for my rover. This made the push up telescoping mast quite light with small antennas for 6m, 2m, and 1.25m. I got a late start and had to pack up early, but overall I am happy with the results (especially the 1.2G grid count). I learned a lot this contest, including the fact that I could pass under a bridge posted for 10'8" with an antenna height of 11' 6". I certainly didn't just drive under. It must have been a sight as I hung out of the drivers side door watching the mast while I creeped under it barely touching the gas. I estimate that I had 2" of clearance!
