Even though Don is still recovering, he let me operate from his station.
The rotator with Skyhawk tribander had been stuck for a while, pointing North.
I came to Don's two hours before the start of the contest to fix the rotator,
or at least to turn the antenna South-West. At that time a thunderstorm began
so the antenna was left pointing North.
The thunderstorm lasted for about six hours - including the first four hours of
the contest. I operated only fifteen minutes for the first two hours and was
wondering if the lightning will ever stop. Few minutes into the third hour
decided to start operating, no matter what - even though the lightning was very
Since I couldn't use Skyhawk, I could only use TH5 that's tuned for SSB. It was
nice to see some activity on 10. But then I spent too much time there and there
