After starting from scratch after Irma (antenna-wise), this was my first run with my new budget antenna setup, using a last-minute homebrew inverted v diople for 80 m and verticals for 40 (+15), 20 and 10 m. My new SO2R setup made it much more interesting than it was before with only one modest antenna. I was told (and have noticed myself) that the rates here in FL are not as dynamic as in other parts of the world, so the new setup + choosing Unassisted seemed to be the means of choice for potential boredom. I planned for at least 40 h, but overslept my alarm (it's probably time to get my ears checked). The upside is that I am well-rested and I think the higher bands were not playing along anyway. I am curious to hear what the big guns have to say, because I was not impressed with 20 and I am wondering if it was the propagation, or the lack of directional antennas. I enjoyed using the 40 m vertical I bought from a nice guy at the Melbourne ham fest and grinned for a moment when ZL2AZ found me on 10 when I was calling CQ. Additionally, I am glad I spent an afternoon putting the dipole in one of our pine trees, I had not expected having so much fun on 80!
