Rig: K3/P3/KAT/KPA -- TS590s (for 10 meters) Antennas: A3s @ 40ft - 2 Half Waves in Phase 40m @ 38ft - MonoGAP40 @ 6 inches - MyAntennas EFWA "M" for 80m at 45ft in the trees Soapbox: Conditions not so good. Local power company is half way towards fixing my powerline QRM issue. Earlier in the week I had S9+10 Buzzing EVERYWHERE from DC to Light; Now its only S7. Power company promises that the work will be completed by next week. Their work shows me I need to work on my local wall wart QRM issues! 10 hours or so worked between house chores and the usual family stuff. This is last contest with station version 3.0 -- Work begins on station Version 4.0 for debut during Florida QSO party. Stay tuned! Not many opportunities to run, but did find some on 20m Sunday. Low bands were simply horrible for me with the powerline QRM. Did OK on 20 and surprisingly well on 15 and 10. Biggest surprise was being called by a VK4 long path while working EU on 20 at sunset Saturday. PJ2T LOUD everywhere, as was P47Y and FCG friend HP1XT from his Panama Condo station. I wish folks would pay better attention to their audio quality. Some ops were almost unintelligible! Starting to like CW better due to this. Best 73 -- Lu - W4LT
