Worked the contest off and on throughout the weekend. Bands were in pretty good shape for much of the contest, just wish that I had a better antenna. Fought some high SWR problems off and on with my horizontal loop, not really sure what the issue is. I suspect either water in my coax or possibly a bad jumper. Have plans to build some new antennas in the near future, sure do miss my hex. Made a couple of good runs on both 40 and 20 meters, and when the chips were down did the S7P thing. I learned a valuable lesson in q's verses mults at the end of the contest. I was watching my progress on the Live Contest Server and trying to catch K2SI who had 328489 points to my 29120. The next thing that I knew, K3ZU snuck up on me and cleaned my clock with 297825 points. The lesson? He had 401 Q's to my 486 Q'S!! Guess I am going to have to adjust my strategy a bit for the next contest. That's OK, its all in good fun. Had the pleasure of working K7OM and NJ4F, looked for KS4YX but did not run into him unfortunately. Worked a couple of African stations on 40 meters last night, 9U705Y and V55V. Today the propagation did not seen as good as it was yesterday, bands seemed to be rather shaky. Rig: Yaesu FT- DX3000 PWR:100 ANT: Horizontal Loop @ 35"
