The Mike & Key ARC choose 10Meter contest weekend to do bell ringing for the Salvation Army from Fry's in Renton. While the shifts are only an hour, I was on-site the whole day in a supervisory capacity after my shift was done. I made the best of it by getting on from the truck to the tune of about 50 Q's. It's kinda tough with a 1/4 wave whip when you are used to a beam. It did keep me out of the store so I didn't spend too much money. (Fry's normally has a bad effect on my wallet.) Sunday was a bit more fun. In-between other projects I got on throughout the day and did some running. Usually 100+ Q rates but I was hitting the 200+ mark quite a bit and did some 300+ as well. That last hour and a half was a real barn-burner. Darn that was fun. Couldn't type fast enough (I'm a challenged typist anyway). I think half the contesters were on from Texas and Ohio though. Some DX slipped through though I wasn't expecting any. A couple northern Europeans and Asian Russia. Even did New Zealand from the truck. (Heard D4C from the truck too but no way.) Some Brazilians and Argentina. Just a few JA's Sunday afternoon but I wasn't expecting many - it was Monday morning after all. I heard many from the truck on Saturday - just couldn't work 'em. Reminder - now that 10Meters is back, move the bell ringing to the 160M weekend for 2012! BTW, we filled that kettle up good and that was fun too. cheers dink, n7wa
