First multiple transmitter shake down for the new contest station on the Kenai.
Thanks to the old team members from Fairbanks for flying down. Kept this low
key with minimum crew to allow station shut down to find any problems and
repair which proved unnecessary. Score does not reflect station performance due
any hardware limitations. Prime time 40 meter op, that would be me, left his
position multiple times to try and work friends on topband. Crew also noticed
the same op, me again, has a lack of enthusiasm for SSB contesting. Low bands
were excellent at the start of the week with many Europe stations worked on 80
and 160. This weekend it was a struggle just to work W7's. Ten meters was a
bust here and just generated heat for the building. 15 opened up the second day
for four hours of good rate. Hope everybody noticed contesting is coming to BY.
Worked many BY stations this weekend, tnx. Early reports by e-mail and phone
indicate this station is working "stuff" not heard from the old location 100
miles South of the Arctic circle. Locals in this area also report the same
thing indicating this ocean view hilltop location and the antenna stacks,
heights via HFTA will be okay for radio. Old traditions die hard. After the
contest we always have dried out fish sticks for post contest debriefing. Crew
mutinied. Wigi,AL7IF served up fresh Kenai King salmon caught in the area.
Kenai Alaska is known for the best fishing in the world and is not the place
for fish sticks I was told. Thanks to KL2R club president Larry, N1TX/KL7 for
coming when he has his own multi-op station to take care of. 73 Rich KL7RA
