KA8O entered the MIQP with the Experienced Operators and Knowledge from W8OAK
which is the Oakland County EOC Operation Center Group. We last played in the
2013 MIQP and posted the Best Overall Score.
This was a first time a M/M contest operation was attempted from this station
and the first time that N1MM+ was used at this station so to suggest that we
did not have a few computer problems would be wrong. This M/M station was
utilized for W1AW/8 last October.
The bands started slow and we struggled with 20 meters. 40 Meters was great on
SSB and 15 SSB worked well to the west. 80 meters came on late into the contest.
We missed working 12 counties and 2 states.
Thanks to all that Participated
