SS CW is surely a challenge every year. Each year I always say I am retiring from any serious operation but I continue to come back. Station: SO1R with K3 and all band 80-Meter inverted vee up about 25 feet at the center. I did use a remote receiving wire which I used for tuning the same band and listening separately while running with the main radio. Had to run the wire about three feet high along my 175 ft long driveway to get it away from the transmit antenna but it worked and could easily hear pretty weak guys on the remote receiver. I have got to figure a way to do this SO2R in the future. Congrats to all the operators and the fine scores. It is always fun to exchange reports with old friends and all of the new ops who are first time in the log this year. The pile-up on N6EE in NNY was tremendous on 40M but managed to snag him by calling a bit off frequency. Found NP4Z on 40 with ten minutes left in the contest and easily snagged him but he was weak but remarkably there was nobody calling him and he continued CQing with no answers. And in final - for some reason I am always super drained after SS CW compared to even DX contests. Must be something about the long exchange and extreme slowing of rates after the first 12 hours or so. 73, Phil K3UA
