Radio: Ten-Tec Orion Antenna: DX-Eng 80/40 Thunderbolt 55ft Dual Band Vertical Software: N1MM Logger+ 1.0.6231.0 I came within a whisker of quitting shortly after the start on Saturday. I was going up the band on 40 m and calling CQ-ing stations, and another GTA station known as a QRP-er was in synch with me calling same runners at roughly the same time. It happened maybe a dozen times. Difference was he was getting through on the first call every time while I had to call several, sometimes many, times to be heard. He cannot have a much better antenna for 40 than my old battered vertical, I thought; he pumps out 5 W while I spit out 100 - the radio gods are trying to tell me something. Good thing I decided to stick it to the radio gods. I also decided to shoot the fish in the barrel and, not having a shotgun, got myself a barrel - switched to Assisted. In the end it kind of worked out: on CW I got all 67 for a sweep with JAC being the last at 19:26 GMT on Sunday.
