This QP is addicting. Thought I'd make a few Q's and then go do something else,
but i got hooked. At the end of the day Saturday, i had 66 counties, missing
Holmes which i think was on at the beginning. Of course i had to have them
all, so to accurately track the mobiles, i re-started early and followed them
all. Finally, KN4Y made it to HOL and into my log at 1713z. Of course, i
thought i'd make a few more contacts.........
As many have commented, 20 was great the whole period into FL. 15 was spotty,
mostly the lower 3rd of the state but once in a while i could work someone up
north - usually on scatter. 10 like 15 was too long for me, caught K4OJ for a
couple Q's late on Sunday. On both 10 and 15 there were often west coast
stations working people i couldn't even tell were there. It was amazing to
hear all the really loud DX stations calling in on 15 - usually much louder
than the FL stations - while beaming south. 40 was a bit noisy and signals
weren't very strong.
I also think that a couple of the mobiles were stretching the ID'ing a bit
thin. I had my TR4w bandmap turned on, so i usually knew who was who but there
was some frequency shifting and frequency sharing so it was comforting to
actually hear a call sign.
great time, thanks for all the contacts!
