Lots of fun this year. Unfortunately, family obligations and a couple of nights
lack of sleep prior to the contest hindered my efforts this year. Despite
limited butt-in-chair time, I felt pretty good about my 100W and Marconi T
antenna getting called by EU on Saturday night. I missed AK, ID, MS and OR for
the WAS on 160 in a single contest. I really enjoyed the K3 in this contest.
As others have pointed out, with the band packed with signals 300Hz apart (or
less), the K3 really made a big difference compared to my 11 year old
Nice to start the contest off with fellow MGEF contester K1EP in the log as QSO
#1. I was thrilled to actually have my little 100W station find a run frequency
and actually hold it (including the QSO rate of100+/hr) for almost two hours
before I was dragged away buy other duties on Saturday night.
Thanks to all of the fellow PVRC members for the points. Thanks to the DX that
struggled to hear my signal!
