I started late, and was unable to put in much time on the first night. Equipment issues, inability to get everything working (no spotting), flaky antennas and amp, not to mention a family outing. The second night was lots of fun. Everything worked (eventually), with the exception of my CW and typing skills. I need a lot more practice! That notwithstanding, I made a major effort to run, which was both scary and fun at the same time. Thanks to all who patiently waited through my slow come-backs, mangling callsigns and fat fingers. In all, I ran almost 50% of the time. In the end it was very satisfying. It was the first time in a while I've put in this much time and was satisfied with the results. See you in the next one! 73, Eric W3DQ Washington, DC K3/Acom 1000 Inverted-L on a small, noisy city lot
