This was a shake-down for the latest - and last for awhile, I hope - iteration
of the station.
I haven't done a contest seriously in a couple of years due to the station's
build-out, and it sure showed. I couldn't believe how rusty my ears were on
Saturday! Also, I had a significant power-line noise problem on Saturday
morning, and that didn't help the situation. I got pretty frustrated, and took
some off times during the day to go work in the yard, and later on, to run to
the grocery store.
However, Sunday dawned a new day; the power-line noise was significantly lower,
and in addition, I'd found a way to get around some of the noise problem with
one of the other new antennas, my ears were in much better shape, and
conditions seemed MUCH better than Saturday.
Overall, I had fun, but wish I could get a "do over" for Saturday.
