Unfortunately the FQP coincides with the first good Spring wx up here in NB, so I did a part time effort as there were too many other jobs needed doing. N1MM+ calls it 13:37hrs, but it was likely less as I was in and out of the chair in quick bursts, LOTS. I've only been to FLA once (last month) and even now the weather up here will be a couple months catching up. (It snowed here last w/e for example) 10m- ummm, nope ! 15m- frustrating. Only worked about 2/3 of the stns I called. 600w and an inverted Vee was all I needed to hear guys, but likely they were aimed NW and/or had lots of noise so didn't hear me very well. They say there are alligators in FLA ! (yup, a few!) 20m- bread n' butter, but most signals from the mobiles were at the noise level all weekend. Good ears guys ! Only missed them a few times as there were some top notch guys in the mobiles by and large this year. 40m- Stood in line a LOT on this band, being so far away and in daylight, hi ! ;-) Mobile signals pretty good, but contest ends too early both nights to take full advantage of darkness. I am sure the guys in W7 feel more strongly about this more than I do, so I won't complain, hi ! The mobiles make this contest. A big tip of the hat again ! One of *THE* best QSO parties for sure. Yeah! p.s.- shame so many fixed stns in the window (Fla and otherwise) Antennas for Radio 1: 10m = A3S 15m = Wire 5el K1WA/K3LR SVDA (100% parasitic + homebrew) 20m = Wire + Aluminum 4-square (Comtek) 40m = Wire 4-square in the trees (Comtek) 80m = Wire 4-square in the trees (Comtek) 160m = Wire 2-el array of inverted L’s in the trees (Comtek w/ homebrew controller) - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - Antenna for Radio 2 ZS6BKW w/ 15m inv vee add-on at 35\\\' No RX antennas Rigs: 2 x IC-7410’s, YCCC SO2R+ box, N3ZN ZN-9 paddle, Yamaha CM500 headset, N1MM+ logger (Usually I\\\'m LP(100w) but have 2 small 600w amps when doing HP in select contests) CU (all of sudden) in the next one! dit dit -Mike VE9AA in NB
