We were late starting, having stopped for breakfast and not allowing enough lead time! Not learning the lesson, we spent too much time on dinner in Greenwood. What can I say? We enjoy our food! I'll have to bring the XYL to that town so we can check it out; first impressions are that it's a lovely community - a small city with character. Once we got started, we quickly developed a "following": OM2VL stuck with us for 34 Q's, cw AND fone, K0AP-24, K2DSW-22, K1RO and K1GQ both 18, etc. etc. It was great being on the receiving end of renewable pileups!!! AND yes, N4CW did get on SSB. Jim, W4TMO, drove most of the time, but he got to operate for quite a while, all on CW; his CW practice sessions have really paid off. He copied some pretty fast calls and exchanges without error. What a son-in-law! We did have problems initially with our roof mount antenna; SWR and got rf into the computer, freezing it up solid, requiring a re-boot. Three times then we changed 20M to the trailer hitch mounted antenna. That solved the problem until later when we installed a choke in the rooftop antenna coax. That fixed the problem. Our thanks to WN4AFP, N4IQ, and KG4IGC for managing this fun event. And thanks to all who shared the adventure with us by providing Q's and support - it's all appreciated. 73, Bert, N4CW and Jim, W4TMO
