Comments: What a difference a day makes. I had a goal of 1250 Q's and a
Sweep and felt it was within reach when I shut down at 0900Z on the first
day. I had close to 800 Q's in the log and needed MS, MB, AK, Mar and NL
for a sweep. Sunday morning I had a real difficult time getting things
moving again. I never did have any decent rates on Sunday. I tried 20 at
1500Z and nothing much seemed to be happening. Went to 40 and found a fair
amount of activity so I started in there. It seemed like pulling teeth to
get a run of any kind going. The upside is that the slower rates caused me
to S&P more than I might have otherwise done and I was able to find the
remaining mults I needed. MS, MB and AK were fairly easy to find and work.
Found VO1MP on 15 at 1854Z with a huge pileup and just happened to catch him
as he was calling for 6's only. Thanks, Gus! The last mult I worked was
VE9XB at 2150Z when he answered my CQ. Life is good. I need to finish
hooking up my second TS-940S and all the antenna switches and filters so I
can take a crack at 2 radio operations. I could have put it to good use on
