I had a weird problem on Friday night. I started to notice that I was messing up entering the calls. I then concentrated on the computer screen and saw that the cursor would jump around between boxes at a random rate. For example, I would enter the call and TAB to the next box. After about 2 seconds the cursor jumped back to the call box. Rather than operate in a nice 160 contest and enjoy myself, I was digging into why the computer was not working properly. I finally got rid of the offending laptop and went and found another laptop. Then I started over and had to deal with two logs. I did manage to merge the files eventually, then went and got some sleep. I did not work much on Friday night. I had better luck on Saturday. I tried some CQing to improve my CW skills. I got up to about 120/hour. Not sure how accurate I was. Conditions seemed great, but my country totals do not show it. I think I missed a lot when I bailed out on Friday. I did work four Asiatic Russians on Saturday, but missed many other countries that are normally easy to work. My USA beverage dveloped some RFI problem. I heard music and the noise level was up 25 dB making it impossible to use. I need to figure that out soon! Rig: K3 with new synthesizers, KW amp, shunt fed vertical.
