Got lots of nice flowers on the signal - I ran my trusty Yaesu FT-450D and Ham
Sticks on trunk-lip-mounts attached mid-way up the back hatch on my wife's
Chrysler Town and Country. I used my MFJ-949 as a coax switch only.
I spent a few minutes on 15M a couple of different times with no luck before I
abandoned it in favor of 40. I worked 44/48 CONUS States - missed MT, NV, UT,
and WY. I also worked VE3 and VE2 along with two Italians, a Spaniard and a
Belgian. I had several stalkers - the prize for most entries in my log goes to
K5KPE with 19 entries. Thank you to everyone who called me - especially the
stations in ND, WA, and OR, who called me in the last hour Sunday evening.
Another shout-out goes to N3FJP who is in my log several times. Although I
used N1MM for my effort, dozens of new Hams in the North Fulton Amateur Radio
League downloaded his excellent software for their first foray into contesting.
It was great to hear him on the air!
Of course an undertaking of this magnitude is not a solo effort. I must thank
my wife Eileen who drove the entire trip (willingly) and helped to alert me to
county lines. I didn't check the odometer before we left, but the mapped plan
was over 500 miles and we made a few changes that I'm certain pushed the number
to over 600. Thanks sweetheart!
