Trey's away in JA, and I've watched a bit over the years, so why not get
the rotators goind, put back the 80 dp, put up the Skyneedle, learn how
to use TR and give it a try while babysitting the grandkids (0.5 and 2.5
yrs). At 2320z before the contest I download the rules, and I can't
quite tell whether you should QSY 1 kHz or 5 kHz after the "second" QSO;
after all, it's the same as calling CQ, no? I never noticed how Trey
does this. I have too much experience with legal documents, so I QSY
big to be sure, but I can't seem to find enough folks ready for me.
What a newbie!
Gee, it sure looks easier when Trey does it! But for a first time ever,
I'm satisfied and can see what to do next time for a better result. It
looks as if 300+ isn't an unreachable goal for me, since the first hour
was only 70 and I know I can do much better once I know the software,
the bands, the rules, the second radio and the players, and get to do it
without the 2 AM feedings. Not bad for a foot-getter-wetter, though.
