Something failed in the phasing of the two towers. Unfortunately everything appeared fine in the shack. I finally decided to go out and check the antennas (was still warm here and full moon) at 0244. Found a cable I had left disconnected during earlier work. Still didn't seem right. Stations I should be able to work would not hear me, at all! Back out at 0530Z to switch back to just the single vertical. Now, everything back to how it should be! But basically lost the first 7 hours. Band seemed in pretty good shape. A fair amount of DX and solid prop to the west coast. Band was pretty quiet too which is always nice. Thanks, as usual, to the Boaring ARC for their continued work creating and supporting the contest. K3 shunt fed tower (eventually!) 91b beverages HiZ receive 4 square
