|Rig : Elecraft K-Line at 650w Antennas : A3s at 40 ft, 2 half waves in phase at 38 feet, EFHW generally at 40 feet or so, GAP MonoGAP40 at 6 inches Soapbox : Thanks to Dave Novoa, W4DN, for the use of the call sign. It all started innocently enough to add some points to the club score. Ended up using 10 hours each day. Very nice and fun pileup on 20m the first night, and conditions degraded from there. 20 was the only band that I felt competitive on. The rest of the bands were challenging to run in. I have never heard the bands as noisy as I heard them today... Lots of hiss and crackle. 75m was quite a challenge! My shack air conditioner died with a loud scream on Saturday during another 20 minute run, which busted that run. The guy who I was working asked if I had stepped on my cat while hunting for the footswitch. Lots of weird conditions, lots of ESP qso's. Great QSO with Tonga on 15 when he was only signal on the band. Several VK's called in Long Path while running EU on 20 at my sunset. At least 40% of the QSO's on 15 and 90% on 10 were in Spanish. I was a momentary "Big Gun" on 20 while the real big guns were doing something else holding 14.169 for a while after working out a mutual understanding with NR3T. I usually cant operate that low due to my station configuration. This is one of my highest point totals from my own personal station. 73 and thanks for the points!
