Conditions for this contest were ideal for my Elecraft P3 to perform its best.
Signals were many but they were well widely separated across the first 50 KHz
of any given band, and new multipliers were constantly sprouting up. It was
hard to keep up. It was multiplier whack-a-mole for an S&P operator.
Furthermore, three bands were open at once and all were exhibiting the same
kind of behavior as sources of juicy multipliers. Compounding the program was
serious rapid QSB.
There is no way in the world I would have caught as many of the multliers as I
did had I not been able to see them, or the traces of where they had been last
were heard. The panadapter saved needless wasted tuning effort which could
then be applied to improving the throughput.
That eased the pain of living through the effect of 3 live CMEs.
