What a fun contest! I had responsibilities that took be away from the race, but I did enjoy my 5 hours in the ILQP. I even had a 60 Qs per hour S&P rate at one time. Special thanks to all the mobile and rover ops who kept the race interesting... N9JF, AD4EB, N0I, K0PC, WB9CIF, K9CQ and ND9E. What good ears you mobile ops had through the ongoing pileups. I had the pleasure of attending the Egyptian Radio Club hamfest many years ago, so W9AIU always brings back a few memories. Due to my time limitation, I started searching for multipliers and CW only. After about two hours of that, I started working anyone and also made a few phone contacts. I stopped for dinner at 2200z and told my wife that I would return at 0100z after earning an edible prize in the ILQP. At 2230z I only had 51 multipliers, so I had 24 new mults to work during the next few hours. It was 0046z and I had just worked K0PC/m in Mercer for 73. I had 14 mins to work 2 more mults. I scanned 40m and 80m phone and CW and finally found N9WEW at 0058z. I tried to work him on 80m phone with no success... I came up short, but had a ball trying. Thanks to Jim and the WIARC for putting on an excellent contest! 73s Dave WN4AFP
