Friday night started kind of slow but took off like gangbusters! I think I worked around 300 the on Friday night alone! Best start in a 10-10 contest I have had in a very long time. The band stayed open until almost midnight! Saturday, however, was quite a bit slower, and I only worked about 200 or so. It did start early, though, about 7:20 am and closed about 10 pm. Sunday started later, about 8 am, but I had some great runs, in some cases 120 per hour (which is pretty good for a 10-10 contest) and as many as 200 in a run. Great action! The band went cold Sunday afternoon, which is typical, but opened up just a bit around the last hour and, of course, the last 10 minutes I started seeing activity up and down the band on the P3 bandscope. The biggest thrill was being called by IW0HBY/9 in Sicily at 20:45 Zulu on Saturday! He was the first EU I have worked on 10SSB in quite a while! (although I did work a lot of EU during the 10 meter contest last December, but that was CW and in the winter when conditions are much better). All in all I am very happy with my score and the performance of the equipment and antenna. Thanks to all the locals who came out to work me (sorry for all the hounding…no, really I’m not!) and thanks also to my many teammates in the Houston SHOT chapter. I think we’re gonna pull of another win!
