My personal best so far single op, but still only 13 hours op'd.
Maybe some year I'll operate more, but will be difficult for a
while, especially with our new family addition, 4-month old Priya:
After some "family time", went back downstairs to finish up the
last few hours on 80M. I didn't hear a single signal. I thought
something was broken. Turns out it was massive aurora. Stepped
outside to see it, but saw nothing. Went back out around 1am
and saw nearly the entire sky filled with aurora light. It's
very rare it makes it down this far South (near the IL border).
Stepped back out at 2am and they were still going strong, dancing
around wildly. Very cool, even if it made the bands suck.
Congrats to all the top scorers, and thanks for the Qs and fun.
