K3CCR is the club station at the Collington continuing-care 
retirement community at FM 18OW in MD, just east of DC. Both 
N3UM and W3GB were available for NAQP CW, and eager to try our 
brand-new antenna, a JK2040 Falcon just installed Thurs. 8/3 on 
our 85-ft. tower. The Falcon has 2 elements on 40 m. and 4 el. 
on 20 m, interleaved on a 27-ft. boom. 

The first 3 hr. 18-21Z we made 159 QSOs and 58 mults, N3UM CQing 
on 40 while W3GB did fast click-&-pounce on 20-m.  The next few 
hrs. were slower as we and others took supper breaks. 

Rate picked up after 00Z, 53 Qs 00-01Z and 59 01-02Z.  At 02Z 
N3UM found 40 m. rate still good, but W3GB saw few Qs and no mults 
on 20 so he went to 80 m. for the first time and did well, QC to 
FL in the east and NM to the west.  After 03Z rates slowed and 
fatigue from our intense antenna party caught up with us.  
Our last Q at was at 0315Z. 

We worked 7 of 13 VE provinces, 4 NA countries, and 46 states. 
Missed DC, DE, NE, ND, and AK.  We are delighted with our new 
antenna.  It has a power gain of about 6 on 40 m., so ERP in 
NAQP was equivalent to running 600 Watts to our old inverted V.
