FT1000MP, Alpha 78, 1 KW, TH6DXX, dipole, inverted vee, tee vertical. Thanks for all QSOs and for participating in the GA QSO Party. Apologies to all who were looking for the promised W4AN/M many county operation. We were unable to solve RFI problems and rig keying problems and gave up the mobile effort. I made a few low power QSOs from the KU8E QTH with my rig. Unfortunately, I used K4BAI believing that further QSOs would be from W4AN/M and thereby caused some confusion when I operated the rest of the contest with the same call, but with the MUSC multiplier instead of HARR. When I began operating from home, I intended to do both CW and SSB. I did make four SSB QSOs (which are still in the log), but N1MM+ refused to log them on SSB until I edited each QSO. That reminds me of a problem with the original N1MM program years ago. There was some obscure menu item that, when checked, caused the program to log all QSOs on any mode as on CW. If anyone knows where to find that so I can turn it off before the next contest, please let me know. Band conditions on the low bands were very good and were fair on 20M. Nice to work a lot of Europeans there. The only QSO on 15 was W2RR, who asked me to move there about 1500Z Sunday and we worked bakscatter. Otherwise, many checks of that band revealed no signals. 40M had long skip and it was hard to work nearby stations. Missed from MUSC: AK, ND, VE5-6-7-8-VO. Did work KL7SB from HARR. Hope we can be mobile again next year. 73, John, K4BAI.
