Sure worked lots of new blood this time. I seem to have reached a
plateau in the 320 QSO range - very frustrating. Sure was great to
operate from home again. 80M was very noisy, and I don't think the wire
vertical I put up Saturday morning had any umph. Missed AZ IA ME MT ND
RI UT VE1,2,8.
Of those I heard AZ & ME. Was happy to pick up W0UY (KS) & W7ZRC (ID)
in last 10 minutes on 80M for new ones.
Still the greatest contest!!
I, by virtue of my statement below, have taken part in the NCJ North
Sprint, conscientiously applying my most ethical interpretation of the
for this contest as set forth in the National Contest Journal.
