The goal was to work every available multiplier and to increase my "grid score" in the ARRL Grid Chase. Thus I entered the unlimited category and spent 99% of the contest pouncing, with just a little hunting. I called CQ just a couple of times to run Italians and Chileans. By Saturday evening I had enough multipliers to consider shooting for 100 multipliers on 20 meters, but Sunday made it evident that 100 was an unreasonable goal. Nevertheless, I made it to 96 mults on 20. I worked very few stations split on 40 meters; nearly everyone was operating simplex. I guess I need that 40-meter beam after all. DX worked: 4X, 5T, 8P, 9A, 9X, 9Y, C3, C6, CE, CM, CN, CP, CT, CU, CX, DL, DU, E7, EA, EA6, EA8, EA9, EI, ES, EU, F, FG, FM, FR, FY, G, GI, GM, HA, HB, HC, HH, HI, HK, HL, HP, HR, I, J3, J6, J8, JA, KH2, KH6, KL, KP2, KP4, LA, LU, LX, LY, LZ, OA, OE, OH, OH0, OK, OM, ON, OZ, P4, PA, PJ2, PJ4, PJ7, PY, PZ, S5, SM, SP, SV, SV9, TA, TG, TI, TK, UA, UA2, UA9, UR, V2, V3, V4, VK, VP2M, VP5, VP9, XE, XF4, YL, YN, YO, YU, YV, Z3, Z6, ZF, ZL, ZP, and ZS for a total of 105 entities. There were only 9 countries I didn't work on 20 meters. Worked PZ5K, PJ4G, 8P5A, and P40L on 6 bands only because 10 meters opened briefly and erratically both afternoons. It was interesting how loud TI1T became while H72DX stayed a whisper. Equipment: Elecraft K3/100; Alpha 8410; homebrew SDR stuff (beam steering RX antennas on 160); Cushcraft X7 at 60 feet; Cushcraft X7 at 100 feet; full sized verticals on 40 and 80; 65-foot "tee" on 160.
