Kind of last minute decision to operate as schedule opened up late. Then decided it was time to finally change it up with the name! I like the 2-letter approach so went with my younger son's nickname/initials -- he's a competitor who encourages my radiosport. I was prepared for the repeats ;^) No idea what I'll do next NAQP CW event!?! First time in a few years to be able to put in 10 hrs in this contest. Pretty much a 3-band event for me -- inability to TX on 15m (rig issue) and currently no 160m ant. No Es propagation on 10m noted the few times I checked. Consistently weak, weak sigs on 20m with rapid, heavy QSB likely as result of strong sustained solar wind stream striking earth... compounded by recent S4-5 local noise source to my west made copy a challenge (CW filtering helps!). 40m and esp. 80m had lots of static crash QRN for me throughout... hence the many repeats. Always fun on CW, no matter. Thanks for the Q's! 73, W1WBB Icom 706 MKIIG to a Hexbeam @ 32', 88' doublet on 40/80m up 40' + low OCF dipole. N1MM+ Logger with WinKeyer USB. LoTW & ClubLog user.
