Friday night was very promising -- I finished with 211 QSOs and 34 mults. But the rest of the weekend was a bust. I started selecting different antennas on Saturday to get the weak ones, and I realized that the 10M StackMatch was broken. Only the all-antennas selection would work. I went out to look at it and found that it was full of ants and that the wire connection posts were badly corroded. Given this, the poor conditions, and the beautiful weather, I decided to give up on a full time effort and instead work on a few projects at the station. I sat down at the radio off an on the rest of the weekend but never had anything like the Friday night run. I did spend some time finally getting the hang of the P3 panadapter -- that was a very nice tool to have in a contest like this.
