As always, special thanks to Tom/NW6P for his hospitality and use of his station. Several sightings of Z60A with lots of people spending a lot of time transmitting over each other trying to call in, but I'd have to say that the highlight of the contest was when Z60A responded to my CQ Sunday morning! Started a bit late Friday afternoon getting in from work, but conditions were good to start. Predictably, 20 meters closes early these days, but 40m rocked. Had some local RFI issues on 80 meters, so had to turn the power down. Friday night / Saturday / Sunday morning 40m openings to Asia and Europe were great. Good openings to Europe Saturday/Sunday on 20m. As far as 15m, it seemed better Sunday than Saturday, but didn't give me very much activity. It almost goes without saying, but nothing on 10 meters. On the self-improvement side, I got pretty well comfortable operating SO2V in N1MM+ with the Flex (still configured as "SO2R".) This is also the first time I had run SmartSDR 2.1.30 in a contest -- I feel like I ran into a few bugs that weren't there in 2.0.x, but I noticed a few improvements too. At one point, DAX started giving me corrupted and un-decodable audio from the RX Streams until I applied the big hammer of restarting everything (radio, Maestro, computer, etc.) Also, 2Tone seemed to want to quit a few times unexpectedly after a few hours of running, but only on DI1 (?!) Hey, they fixed call stacking in N1MM+, though! Thanks for the Q's everyone! 73, Bill/W9KKN @NW6P
