The above score includes 35000 bonus points for activating 35 counties and 1500 bonus points for working N4CD, K5OT, and W5CT each in 5 counties. With poor conditions leading up to this years TQP I didn't know what to expect. Turns out there were plenty of QSOs to be had. 40m was the money band this year with almost double the QSOs I had on 20m. Had some BIG pileups on 40m I did my best to handle. Tried 15m several times with N6MU but not a peep. This was probably one of the most trouble free QSO parties I can remember. Almost every QSO party there's at least some minor glitch with something. Everything just worked. No RF problems, no hardware problems, no software problems, and no wrong turns! I even solved an interference problem I had been having with the TPMS in my truck. Mobile Station Equipment: Elecraft K3, Scorpion SA-680, Dell Latitude D630 running CQ/X logging software, 2015 Ford F250. Thanks to everyone who called and, as always, a BIG thanks to my wife, K5AKS, for driving! Below are some statistics provided by CQ/X.
