Thanks again to John Evans, N3HBX, for letting me use his fine station again for Sweepstakes SSB. I did better than last year the first night - ending up with about 90 more QSOs when I got a few hours of sleep about 4:30AM EDT. I went to 80 meters about 30 minutes early on Saturday evening - 40 didn't seem great but 80 was good for a few hours that evening. Sunday was a slog. Nothing I did seemed to generate decent rates. I had 81 sections early Sunday afternoon. I pointed the 15 meter stack Northwest - 15 didn't really sound good enough to run on but I scanned the band and found KL7SB. 82 sections. I switched to running on 15 so I could point a 20 meter stack Northwest and actually got a nice short burst of callers. I also found VY1AAA CQing with no answers for the sweep! :-) As I tuned further up the band, I found VY1MB under heavy QRM for a second NT QSO. Unassisted sweeps feel like an accomplishment - I missed VI and NNY in CW. My last sections were GTA, EB, SB, ND, AK, and NT. GTA? Really? :-) Only 1 QSO from PR and two from VI and NT. QSOs by section and hourly rates follow. Thanks for the QSOs! :-) 73, Mark, KD4D Section Tot PR 1 NT 2 VI 2 AK 3 MAR 3 DE 4 GTA 4 ND 4 NL 4 ONN 4 RI 4 NNY 5 PAC 5 SD 5 VT 5 WTX 5 AB 6 QC 6 MS 7 SK 7 NE 8 ONE 8 WY 8 BC 9 EB 9 EWA 9 ID 9 ME 9 NH 10 NLI 10 ONS 10 UT 10 WMA 10 WV 10 LA 11 WPA 11 MB 12 MT 12 NV 12 SB 12 SDG 12 SF 12 SJV 12 ORG 14 AR 15 IN 15 SC 15 NM 16 SFL 16 SNJ 16 CT 17 KS 17 KY 17 EMA 18 ENY 18 LAX 18 NNJ 18 OK 18 WCF 18 WNY 18 EPA 20 IA 20 AL 21 NFL 23 OR 24 TN 24 SV 25 NC 26 GA 27 SCV 27 MO 28 CO 31 NTX 34 WI 34 WWA 34 STX 35 AZ 36 MI 46 OH 46 IL 59 VA 65 MDC 66 MN 69 Hourly Rates Day Hr 3.5 7 14 21 Tot Accum 11/18/2017 21 0 1 57 16 74 74 11/18/2017 22 3 41 20 0 64 138 11/18/2017 23 83 9 0 0 92 230 11/19/2017 0 86 6 0 0 92 322 11/19/2017 1 81 11 0 0 92 414 11/19/2017 2 101 4 0 0 105 519 11/19/2017 3 33 46 0 0 79 598 11/19/2017 4 34 45 0 0 79 677 11/19/2017 5 52 13 0 0 65 742 11/19/2017 6 9 54 0 0 63 805 11/19/2017 7 26 21 0 0 47 852 11/19/2017 8 10 20 0 0 30 882 11/19/2017 11 5 3 0 0 8 890 11/19/2017 12 20 30 0 0 50 940 11/19/2017 13 2 10 0 0 12 952 11/19/2017 14 0 9 37 0 46 998 11/19/2017 15 0 13 33 0 46 1044 11/19/2017 16 0 6 71 0 77 1121 11/19/2017 17 0 0 51 5 56 1177 11/19/2017 18 0 0 17 4 21 1198 11/19/2017 19 0 0 38 5 43 1241 11/19/2017 20 0 0 15 28 43 1284 11/19/2017 21 0 1 10 4 15 1299 11/19/2017 22 0 21 12 0 33 1332 11/19/2017 23 30 12 0 0 42 1374 11/20/2017 0 5 9 0 0 14 1388 11/20/2017 1 12 23 0 0 35 1423 11/20/2017 2 2 0 0 0 2 1425 Total 594 408 361 62 1425 1425
