The Southwest Idaho Contest Club traveled over to NK7U?s Baker, Oregon
contest superstation to have some fun. Unfortunately, Joe/NK7U, could not
make it, so we carried on without him. Our exchange, ?JOE Oregon? was in his

We used NAQP as our shakedown cruise of WriteLog in a multi-operator,
networked environment. NK7U has been a CT house, but I would say we are
going to be moving to WriteLog for future contests. The networking is great
and when the system did crash, the logs re-sync?d automatically. This
feature alone is worth the price and switch. The customizable screen layouts
are super as well, you can use big screen fonts on the text you look at a
lot. Good on aging eyes. You can also arrange the screen information in a
way that makes the most sense for you by simply dragging and resizing the
boxes. If anyone is interested in more details on our WriteLog experience
send me a note.

As far as the bands go 10M obviously was a big disappointment. We scanned
the band every 20 min or so and never heard a peep. The fact that anyone got
any QSO?s was amazing. Of course you can always work the locals, but out
west here the contesters are few and far between, California not
withstanding. 15M probably was better than our numbers tell as were plagued
by a very high local noise level S5-7 or so. We need to track this down
before CQWW this fall. 20M was our money band and we had a station on it for
probably 10 of the 12 hours. 40M doing great for mults and sure was fun
right at our local sunset when the band just exploded with a great run of 25
stations in 10 minutes. 80/160 suffered from the usual high summer noise
levels. Our multipliers on these bands were low again because of the big
states out here, there just are not many multipliers to work near by.  For
example, within 500 miles of NK7U in Baker, OR there are 9 multipliers or
so. Within 500 miles of Boston, there are 17 multipliers. And, like I saw
mentioned in another posting or two, ?Where was Nevada?? We missed that
state on all the bands, as well as Alaska. Nebraska and Hawaii found their
way into our logs on only one band. And finally, we sure do miss Jay, VY1JA,
up in the north.

Multiplier Summary -- as reported by WriteLog, not all these are
NAQP mults, so the count will not correspond to what is reported
