K3CCR is the club station at the Collington continuing-care retirement community at FM 18OW in MD, just east of DC. N3UM and W3GB operated Multi-2 in CQ WW CW 2017, QRV for 31 hrs. We ran on 40 for 1.4 hrs. to start, 73 Qs at 53.5/hr using our new 2-el. beam. Never could run at all on 40 in DX tests with our old Inv-V! Rate almost as good clicking spots for 2 more hr. Sat. 12-13Z we ran EUs at 107/hr, then 90/hr 13-14Z. Sat. PM rates were slower but we got many mults on 15 & 20 m. After 00Z Sun. we again did well for 5 hrs. on 40, and on 80 for 3 hrs. after 02Z, combined rates of 43 to 60/hr. on 2 bands. Got a few 160 Qs after 05Z. Sun. 12-15Z on 20 m. we clicked on EU spots for 43 to 47 Qs/hr., then ran at 60/hr. 15-17Z. For the rest of Sun. we scraped up another 94 Qs and some exotic mults until QRT at 22Z. With k index = 0 low-band conditions were outstanding: loud signals, low QRN. 15 and 20 m. were also quite good. We were pleased with our results. We got DXCC on 40 and 20 m., worked 135 distinct countries and 36 zones on all bands,
