100 W, dipoles up 20-30'. I only had a bit of time on Sunday to get down to the shack, put up the antennas for the winter, and operate. Fortunately the bands seemed to be in okay condition. Ten meters had no activity on it when I checked, and fifteen meters was quite sparse, but had good signals when they were there. One of my first contacts yielded the NT multiplier, so it was nice not to worry about that one. Later I decided to pass on the NV multiplier from W7RN in an effort to get it on 80 meters to finish my 80 m WAS, but I didn't find them again. My missed multipliers had a few surprises in it, including EPA, GTA, MB, and QC. Almost all of my effort was search-and-pounce. I tried on a few occasions to run, but had very little success. With limited time to operate, I chose instead to go back to search-and-pounce to keep the rate up. It was fun to dust off the microphone, but before the next major SSB contest I really need to get the right adapter for my footswitch. I ended up using a small straight key with the proper connector attached to its cable to key the PTT, but the footswitch is far more convenient when there's so much information that needs to be typed quickly.
