K3, 75-100 W, dipoles up 6-8 m. I only had a limited amount of time to spend on this one, so I decided not to put up all the antennas. The 80/160 m fan dipole has stayed up all summer, but no antennas for 40-10 m were up. In the past I've had fun with two-band contests (typically 40/15 with a single antenna back when 15 m was reliably open) and thought I should try another one with 20 and 80 m. My low dipole on 80 m is not very DX-friendly but with US states and Canadian provinces as multipliers, it can still provide a decent number of points (single-band 80 m would be 2336 pts). Sunday morning local I had a good run on 80 meters starting around 5:20, with contacts trailing off toward sunrise. I contemplated a single-band entry for the overall contest, but decided against it having missed so much time on 80 (slept at night, thunderstorms Saturday evening). Band conditions on 20 m were very good, with stable openings to Europe throughout most of the day. The band was crowded, and I appreciated the filtering in the new (to me) radio. Most of my 20 m operation was search-and-pounce, but I called CQ a few times without too much success. There were a couple of domestic highlights to this contest: I think I have finished off my Triple Play award with Maine on digital, as well as my second band of Worked All States (80 m) with Nevada finally in the log. It has been just over three years since I began operating under that callsign/location combination for the award. I'm looking forward to CQWW SSB next month!
