The first try with my new 10 meter antenna. As usual, Murphy struck right away as we actually blew out our multiplier hunting second station due to high rf coming down the unprotected feedline. (duh) I borrowed the K3 from my brother, so when he stopped by to see how we were doing, he was a bit disappointed that we killed his "baby". The main station was another K3 and my homebrew amplifier. It coasted along nicely all weekend. It sure was fun seeing ten meters coming back, and while we did not work everything that was on the band, we took a pretty good portion! I was disappointed in not many JA stations appearing in the log, but I think we worked just about every VK who had an antenna connected to his radio. W1UE and K1BX did 99.5% of the operating. K1WHS was the go-fer. I did pizza delivery and kept the coffee pot running. At one point I worked under the shack installing foam insulation board and sealing it with spray foam. That was hard and I succeeded in getting most of the foam in my hair. We had three home brew yagis aimed at Europe. There were two yagis aimed at SA and a single yagi for everywhere else. I can't wait for next year!
