I was not sure if I wanted to operate seriously this year or not but the opportunity to operate using Remote Ham Radio’s ( station in Summit, NY developed and that got the excitement flowing. It turned out to be a fantastic time. Having only operated remotely for about a week, I really wasn’t sure what to expect of it during a contest. Well, it was fantastic. I would recommend this experience to anyone. Special thanks to RHR (especially W2RE and WW2DX) for helping me out with this. The contest itself was generally a great time. The high bands, especially 15 and 10 were a disaster but 20M provided some great fun - especially on the second day. The low bands were OK, and 40 was fantastic during the final hour. I’m a huge fan of the 36 hour limit for single ops. The Summit station played exceptionally well. I really enjoy SO2R but I only had one K3/0 this time so it was a 1 radio affair - lots of CQing! Using just one radio actually made for a more relaxing event. Thanks for the QSOs and fun! 73, Nate/N4YDU Station: Elecraft K3 with Expert 1.3KFA 1.5KW Amplifier 10m " 5/5/5 Stacks + 7 Element Mono bander @ 100′ 15m " 5/5/5 Stacks 20m " 4/4 Stacks + 5 Element Mono bander @ 100′ 40m " 3 ele 40M yagi 80m " Full size 4 Square 160m - Full size 4 square
