Rig: Flex 6300 @5W Ant: Vertical loop with elevated counterpoise Dick N4HAY,JP AB4PP, and Paul AA4XX activated the KnightLites Excalibur QRP contest site for CQWW160CW 2018. Condx were good both nites, but we opted for a laid back operating style this year. We shared 5 hour shifts, with a primary goal of having fun. The Flex 6300 is proving to be FB contest rig, although there definitely is a learning curve for new ops, as we have Smart SDR, SDR Bridge, CW Skimmer, and N1MM syncing up with each other, and the inevitable occasional hiccups call for some interesting learning moments. Saturday evening the N1MM+ database became corrupted, but fortunately our log file was OK, so we were able to get N1MM running with no further problems. It was interesting to see skimmer spots from JA -- the first time I have ever seen spots from JA on Top Band. It was also nice to have W6 and VE7 answer our CQ, something that has not occurred to us before while running QRP. Our team is becoming a bit more seasoned with each contest, and we are looking fwd to our next contesting adventure together. Thanks to all the great ops out there. 73, Paul AA4XX Trustee for WQ4RP
