This was my first time operating an NAQP as well as my first try using 2
radios. Both had some rough spots with the roughest being my offtime
strategy. I should have reserved some time for the last hour or so of the
contest. I also wish i would have worked the brief early opening on
10m-however the 100+ first hour on 20m was too strong a lure.
The 2 radio part actually went well technically, with the only rough spot
being my failure to alt-r for the log when I flipped the switch on the box
for radio #2. Lots of trips to the log window for some editing. (First
try w/TR software-maybe there's a better way?)
Thanks to Jim, N3BB, for the use of his staion (and name!) and to George,
WB5VZL for the use of his switch box.

Subject: New Radios
One of the simplest things missing from modern radios is a line
level audio input. Such a second audio input would allow audio
from voice keyers, computers, etc. to go in at a level (0 to +8
dbm, i.e. a volt or two), that would eliminate virtually all the
problems with hum, rf feedback, etc., that crop up when using a
microphone level (-50dbm/several millivolts) input.
I think some old rigs had such an input: back then it was called
a phone patch input.

Subject: S meters
The only problem with HF S meters is the range of > 120 dB from under 0.1 uV to
over 1 V antenna input signals. VHF mobile radio people have excellent IC's
for about 60 dB signal strength measurements as they use reasonable power!
Some of these cheap S meters have appeared in ham magazines lately.

P.S. Who needs S meter in contest when everybody is 59 - right?

Subject: NAQP Results
Well, this was my first NAQP (actually my first CONTEST other than
a few hours here and there in WPX, etc). Had lots of fun, and think
I learned some things for next time.
10 and 15m were pretty quiet here too, altho I worked CX6BZ in
Montevideo, Uruguay on 10m - he was a good S7 here. Had a good opening
to SC, GA, NC, and AL for a bit at that time, but that was about it.
15m was even more empty.... 20m and 40m were very nice though.
I was a member of the Big Blue team, so the team score will be
turned in later. However, my stats were:
332 QSOs and 119 mults
