My plan this time was to be on 160, 80 and 40, mostly looking for new ones on 160. Nice to not have to worry about what was happening on 40 while I was on 20. I took advantage of my tuned N6RK rx loop on 160 and 80, in full diversity, tnx to the K3. Very interesting - the JAs were mostly louder on the loop than on the doublet, on both bands. It certainly helped me read through the noise. Amazing how quickly the propagation shifts - sometimes one dot in one ear, and then in the other! After two pre-sunrise days, it was nice to sleep in on Sunday morning, not having to worry about the higher bands. After a leisurely brunch, I puttered about the house for a bit. But I AM a contester, after all, and the siren call of 20m was too much to bear. I looked at the 20m bandmap, and it was covered with red calls. Oh boy - easy pickin's. So I spent the last 50 minutes of the contest on 20. Ralph, VE7XF K3, Acom 1000, 260' doublet, 7' dia N6RK rx loop, N1MM Classic (I like the look better)
