|Rig: K3 Amp: KPA-500 LP-PAN 2 Panadapter Ant: All wires 20m and 40m ZS6BKW 15m Delta Loop 80m Dipole 160m K2KQ RX: homebrew K9AY Lot of S&P and limited amount of running. Had a couple of good runs on 40m and 20m but mostly S&P. Max rate was 240 per hour, best 1 hour rate was 88. I entered assisted for the first time, but the spotting network did not proved to be useful. I have much to learn on how choose the right cluster and how to set the right filters. Most of the sports were either busted or I did not hear the station that was spotted, and/or showed up too late to the game. 80m was surprisingly good, the conditions on 40m was very challenging, so little usable bandwidth and so many stations. Found very few that was working split, not like in a CW contest which could have provided a few more multipliers. 20m was the go to band, Sunday stayed open all day. I found very little activity on 15, especially on Sunday. I think I will do more phone in the future even though it is a lot more work. Thanks everyone for the Qs, but most of all my wife for keeping me on life-support throughout the contest with fresh Java, apple pie and good home cooking, that afforded me the extended BIC. 73, Sandor - NB1N|
