I arrived on Thursday after a redeye flight for which I got about an hour of sleep on. I was up til about 1AM localtime on Thursday night as well with work and family issues, and so by the time 0000z rolled around I was already tired and thinking this will be just a casual experience of maybe 8 or 10 hours and then I'd need to sleep the rest of the time to catch up. For my first WAE attempt, I ended up going about 34 of the 36 allocated hours, with a few breaks in between. The station played like superman of course and I felt loud always. Hearing the high bands with absolutely zero noise at all hours of the day was a treat, and I have to say, working Europe on 80M at 2.5 hours before local sunset is a treat! The view out over the water was breathtaking. Congrats to DL4NAC and K1LZ also for a great showing. I heard you both often and you were always moving along well. I was moving slowly - half the time either mostly asleep or almost hallucinating from lack of sleep and many many times having to really concentrate on just which buttons on the keyboard do what. Not my best showing but certainly one of the most fun. I also kept my send speed relatively low, and actually enjoyed the QTC process - gave me more time to catch a wink Thanks again to Jeff (K1ZM/VY2ZM) and his wonderful wife Miriam - you both made my stay unforgettable. 73 de N6GQ, aka YN2AA, 4K9Z, 9H3ZZ, etc, etc. and maybe soon with my own VY2 call ;)
