i have been doing that since 1984 arrl contest at n5au. n5ddo was on 10m
i was on 15m. the rate was slow and we started passing qs it worked so
well that we told everyone to go to the other band.
since then every m/m or m/2 at n5au has done this. we would have been
doing it sooner and better during this years arrl but, i had a station
full of ops that had never been to n5au and most have never ever done a
m/m or much contesti
ng for that matter. i am amazed that we did as well
as we did considering our ops.
all in all it was a good weekend. i got to work on the station and fix
some of the broken stuff.
the best contact for me was working an iv3 on 160m then getting called
by and then working tm5c over the top of the iv3 and the us pileup :)
the sked bug is still in version 7.25.
