Big thanks to Bob W3RQ for coming over Saturday afternoon! Thanks to his interest in operating, we both were in operator chairs all afternoon turning dials, sharing a single screen and keyboard setup for SO2R, and making Q's during the afternoon hours which are normally slow for me when I'm single op. This was the best afternoon rate my station has ever had in NAQP and Bob gets all the credit for keeping two BIC's! After Bob left, I then operated straight through to get all 12 hours in. The starting gun had some interesting (E-skip?) openings on 10M/15M for us to work. It was great to find the East Coast and Midwest stations going to 40M super early. 20M never felt strong to the far west until after my sundown when a lot of 20M signals came way way up and a couple new short paths opened with very good rate just from CQ'ing. Several Europeans called in on 20/40/80 and were happy to give NAQP-style exchanges. This was the first CW NAQP I had ever operated assisted or M/2, and was super happy to use my attention-deficit method to click through recent spots to find a prime Q. I want to mention, that just in the past week I had to replace my trackball clicker button after so many Assisted contest clicks! Congrats to the "big M/2's" especially NC4KW and W2FU. W2FU is just everywhere, man! Equipment: Two Ten-Tec Eagles. One rig goes to a 130-foot doublet through tuners. The other rig goes to some backyard single-band verticals.
