The weekend started out fine, everything configured, ready to go and went downhill from there. Had a myriad of software issues occurring while attempting to run, around call stacking. Soundcard settings magically changing, without operator intervention. Late Saturday my amplifier stopped working properly, and now runs at half power in both modes of operation (Full/Half) across all bands. When it rains, it really pours since this is likely going to be an expensive proposition to fix and after January's events, it was frustrating. Went to bed, discouraged and came back Sunday to try to figure out what was wrong, was it the LP-100A couplers? Coax cables? The IC-7300 now had infinite SWR on 20 meters and was deaf, which was scary, I thought maybe the quadplexer or a high power BPF had failed or worse yet, the radio was toast. Ruled the quadplexer and bpf failure out as the KX3 was working fine on 20M. Had to do a hard reset on the 7300 and restore my saved settings to get the 7300 to work and just threw in the towel again so to speak at that point. I got back on with 100W and managed to limp ahead to beat last year's score slightly, but nowhere near the goal that I had set for myself earlier this week which, being a certain personality type, led to much frustration and anger. 73, WT2P
