|The usual combination of family obligations and taxi duty for the kids only allowed for about 20 hours OTA. I finally got the N1MM+ voice keyer working fairly well - I thought the serial numbers sounded stilted, but I had many fewer requests for fills with them than when I spoke the numbers, so I guess equalization and a little compression works wonders. Murphy visited as he always does during a contest. My trusty Alpha 9500 decided to introduce infinite SWR on the way to the SteppIR, so I switched over to the Expert 1.3K-FA and ran SO1R for the last day. Despite the usual doldrums on Sunday afternoon, I had some intense runs (200+ Qs/minute for short bursts), probably because of a relatively rare prefix and the fact that all the other loud stations had been worked. I didn't expect to make nearly as many Qs as I did, nor score anywhere near what I did, so I can't complain. I don't like SSB contests nearly as much as CW or digital due to the endless splatter and stations all over each other on 20 and 40 Meters, but this one was fun.|
