This was a one radio multi-single operation by K5KG and K8MR. Since this was a last-minute plan to do this as a m/s, we did not take the time to set up a mult radio. K8MR took the day shift, and K5KG took the night. Conditions, as we all know, were not terrific, but at least they were equally poor for all. Our QTH on salt water helped, as always. The poor audio quality and splatter of some stations was especially disturbing. It seemed to be most prevalent on 10m and 15m from some stations south of the border. I occasionally asked a few stations to reduce their mic gain and, when they obliged, it seemed to correct the problem, but not totally. The prevalence of this problem seems like it could be fixed.
