This was definitely fun! Ian VE3JI and I very much enjoyed the contest and the conditions were much better than expected. Since there were only two of us we decided that we are going to do our best without killing ourselves, with emphasis on fun rather than a high score. So we used only one radio and took turns. As basic M/S operation as it gets. Always a fun contest. Seems both activity and ops are getting better. Just a few weeks ago I had completed some antenna work and was very much looking forward to battletesting it- a new 4SQ on 80 and a second KT36XA at 68'. The good news is that the new antennas worked really great. Even though the 4SQ needs tons of radials, it hears very well with a very good F/B. Similarly, being able to switch between the ~105' and 68' tribanders made a huge difference. However, the Prosistel PST61 rotator failed again, this time the motor died/froze. This particular rotator has been a consistent problem over the years and has failed way too many times for various reasons. It's a piece of junk I won't recommend to anyone. With the failed rotator, our 40m and ~105' antennas were stuck at 61 degrees and the 68' permanently fixed at 45 degrees. This significantly reduced our ability to chase multipliers (or hear callers coming from the sides). Thank you everyone for the Qs and multipliers. Rudy N2WQ and Ian VE3JI
