Tried really hard to log accurately to lower our 4.4% reduction of last
time. I appreciate all the good and patient operators we ran into! Man
I had a dickens of a time with some of the exchanges (both conditions
and between the ears problems). Absolutely no jamming this time until
after the contest on 3830. It was way to late in the evening to warm up
the Titan and show the jammer who was who though.
We found the band conditions difficult. The rates and Qs were
significantly down from January. Bob and I were hanging in there
assuming others were seeing the same difficulties we were. The SO
scores show it, but there are some nice M/2 submissions!!
We had a great time again and are planning on making this M/2 a regular
event. I really enjoy getting together and seeing what we can pull off
amidst our normally busy schedules. This year we had three AB577
military masts at our disposal. We only had the time to erect one at
70'. Since I recently moved into a new home, I have not had the
opportunity to install most of my equipement. That allowed us the
second tribander. It worked out GREAT being able to work any band on
any radio...much better than the simple 10/20/80 & 15/40/160 setup we
ran with in January.
