Managed to bag 1376 Qsos in 19.5 hours of operation. I had to catch a few Z's during the night, as I was scheduled to be at the church at 9am for ushering duties. Otherwise, I would have tried to go the distance for a full 24, or at least 23! (Getting old ain't for sissies, I'm told). Although solar condx are down, I found the bands to be reasonably cooperative. Running low power made getting good European runs pretty much out of the question, but the domestic ops just kept coming during those F1 times. Found that the HQ stations were everywhere. Seems like every year, more and more HQ stations participate, so they are not the rarity that they once were. A nice surprise in the final 5 minutes was working VK4TJF and VK5GR to get zones 55 & 59. STATION: FTdx 5000 running 150w. 2X triband yagi at 60' 2el 40m yagi at 75' 80m Inv Vee 160m Inverted L Wintest with VE7CC cluster 73, George, K5KG
