Peter, W2CDO and I again teamed up for this year's running. Our goal was 1000 Q's, which we barely missed last year. We were well on our track until the rotor died on Saturday morning with the yagi facing south. Not good timing. It took most of the day to get it moving again. Unfortunately, the inv-L was no substitute. On the plus side, everything inside worked -- new radio/amp combination and K9AY rx antenna. And my CW skills were not as rusty as I had feared. We managed to work 7 on all bands, all in the Caribbean In the end, while we had a good time, the results were almost exactly the same as last year, although it took 25% more time. The big difference was on 15 meters, where our numbers were *way* lower. The on-line scoreboard made it that much more interesting. I hope more folks will be using it in the future. See you in the next one! 73, Eric W3DQ Washington, DC K3 / ACOM 1000 F12 C3-SS / Inv-L / K9AY (rx)
