With the Indians in the baseball playoffs, I worked both Friday and Saturday
night, to hang out at the TV transmitter just in case. Tough job to watch
baseball on TV and get paid for it, but you know, somebody has to do it. I did
not plan to have the Saturday night game go past 1:30 am, so I only had about 4
hours of sleep. Fortunately driver AC8E did not stay up for the game, so he
arrived rested and on time Sunday morning.

Conditions were decent if one didn't need to talk to in state stations on 40
meters. A few months ago I picked up a new 4 resonator mount for the Hustler,
and with the 10 meter resonator in place it also loads on six meters. So with
the 20 meter Hamstick in place and 2M FM, I have 12 band modes available. I
tried a couple of calls on 2M and spent a minute CQing on 28040 cw at the
appointed hour, but nothing there. But it should be fun in a couple of years.

It was a very nice day to be out touring in Pennsylvania, although with the
warm autumn and dry summer the leaves have not yet changed colors. I did not
really miss doing the first day, with the need for 7 hours of driving after
dark, a relatively short off time between operating periods, motels to deal
with, the Saturday night RTTY QRM, and the need to depend on 80 meters for long

Now to unpack the car until the Michigan QSO Party in April 2008.
