My goals in this one were as usual, a sweep, solving the word puzzle, and following the mobiles until either I or they ran out of gas. As noted conditions weren't great, but at least 20 was adequate from here in the very upper North Woods. Forty was very noisy on Saturday evening due to the disastrous storms in the south. I did most of my receiving on the east Beverage since that was the quietest. As K4U (NF4A) noted 15 was open but there were few stations there. I swept 20 phone every hour or so, but mostly heard only the same 15 or 20 strong stations with a few others interspersed in between. This was a 100% S&P effort. I pretty stayed BIC on Saturday, but took quite a few short breaks after I got the sweep on Sunday. At halftime I had 64 counties. I picked up GUL (K4KG) early Sunday, and LIB (NO5W) and finally MON (K4OJ) fairly late. I made 52 QSOs with the "FLORIDA SUN" stations, including at least one with each. Frequent fliers: K4OJ-42 K4KG-39 AD4ES-30 N4EEB-29 NO5W-28 W4AN-23 N4FP-21 K8MR-19 KN4Y-18 K4ZGB-14 I only made 4 SSB QSOs with the mobile stations and they were all arranged on CW. I never heard a free range mobile SSB station. Gear: K-3, 500 watt Tokyo HP amp. C-19 on 20/15, 2 el phased verts on 40. Beverage. As always it's the mobiles that make this a fun operation. Thanks to all. 73 Jim in far northern Wisconsin where it snowed Saturday night
