I can't stress it enough... prepare prepare prepare... AHEAD of time hi.
Well at the beginning things weren't looking too hot, it took forever to get
all set up (different rotor and controller = miswired). After the rotor fiasco,
I got a little hurried and miswired the relay to bypass the preamp, as the one
in the RFC 4-110 is blown(definitely time to repair that one)I needed to use my
spare external LNA. Well once all that was over with I started listening on the
Kenwood TS2000, and without that LNA,it was definitely pretty deaf. I switched
back to the FT857 and I started hearing voices again(they weren't in my head).
Anyways, down to the results...
I cut short on EN93 and FN03 due to the delay and it shows in my results.
When in EN93 and FN03, I simply jumped across the boundary to work each station
in both grids. This seemed to work pretty well, so I continued with that system
when I went down to EN92 and FN02.
EN93 = 1957km - 12 QSOs - 7 Grids
FN03 = 1973km - 14 QSOs - 6 Grids
EN92 = 3642km - 14 QSOs - 11 Grids
FN02 = 4047km - 15 QSOs - 12 Grids
