I operated as K8MR on Friday night and for an hour early on Saturday evening, then went QRT to operate as W3USA. 65 foot vertical wire hidden in the trees, with a minimal ground system, at the Florida condo in Sarasota. Fun to note the difference from back in Ohio (propagation and location, not the crummy station). Loudest signals were ZF9CW and C6AGU. Being a thousand miles from most activity resulted in many copyable stations not being able to hear me, especially if those guys spent their time listening on an east-west RX antenna. Having a marginal signal, one notes the short time QSB, and often had to pick a QSB peak to complete a QSO. I'm definitely distance challenged: only one QSO in W6/7, and only three mults each in W0 and W1. In one noteworthy achievement, I did manage a 10 QSO run, without any noted cluster spots. (RBN may have helped some folks find me). 73 - Jim K8MR
