The weather was beautiful today-- a cool and crisp sunrise, with no clouds in the sky, and my neighbor passed his technician exam at the Roanoke hamfest today, so it was very tempting to do antenna work and show him the ropes of how antennas work, rather than work the contest. But I'm glad I participated, as things seemed to work well at the station, and I had a lot of fun. The antennas are finally all tuned up and working the way they should, and I hope to add a few more low fixed triband antennas for quick pointing to the south and northeast in the coming weeks. Thanks to those who were willing to try different bands near the end for missing multipliers! Don W4OC and I had fun hoping over the entire HF band in just a few minutes, as we worked on all the bands, and Summer VE5RAC was kind enough to jump from 80 to 40, but I couldn't hear her on 15 m late at night. Several stations were able to be heard, though, at around midnight, even when you wouldn't think the band would be open - lots of fun! Thanks to those who were came along for the cross band attempts, like K3AJ, W1FJ, W1WBB, W2FU, K5PI, N2GM. Thanks everyone for the QSOs! 73 ted n9nb
