K3CCR is the club station at the Collington continuing-care retirement community at FM 18OW in MD, just east of DC. N3UM and W3GB operated Multi in SSB SS 2017. We both had more time for SSB SS than we did for CW SS, 20 vs 11 hrs BIC, with much better results. With 2 ops each of us has to stay up late OR get up early, but neither of us has to do both; it’s great. For the first 4 hr. our rates on 20 and then 40 m. were only fair, but we did well on sections; got 48. We got far better rates on 80 m. starting at 0108Z, 60-70 Qs/hr. for 4 hrs, with 77 and 75/hr. for the best two half-hours. Run rate slowed 05- 0530Z, so clicked spots till those slowed; QRT at 0603 with 75 mults and 430 Qs. Sun. AM on 40 and 20 m. was slow, as Sun. SS often is; got 76 Qs and 3 nults. Sun. PM rates were better; got MT and AK on 15 m., NL on 20, and ND on 40 for 82 sections, and 170 more Qs. Never heard PR or saw it spotted; sobering.
