We threw together a last minute multi-multi effort just before the contest. The alert went out 24 hours before the contest to local possible operators. The intent was to have a fun weekend with no stress and no pushing to be a serious contender. K5QB (ex. KB9IIZ) and WA2VYA responded to come over and operate with Susan (K5DU) and me (K5NA). We chose to do a multi-multi to avoid restrictions from band changes and number of signals on the air at the same time. That way anyone could sit down and operate at an open station at anytime. After the contest started, we operated, visited with each other, completely stopped for meals, and slept at nights. Somehow we managed to be on the air for 37 hours, more than I thought we would. But a lot of that was with only one operator in the ham shack. Most of the operating was done by K5QB and WA2VYA and they did a fine job. They kept the station on the air for 37 hours and made over 2.5M. They were certainly more serious than I was. Susan, K5DU, did a lot of back-up operating and still managed to provide meals and support for the effort. I did little operating and spent all day Sunday putting up a beverage antenna to the east so I could hear and work 3C1L on 160M after dark. (I was successful) Maybe next year we will do a serious effort. 73, Richard - K5NA
