Great Propagation Conditions on 40 and 80!  Almost Nil on 20.  Rig was Drake
TR-5, keyed with a Dell laptop, using N3FJP software.  This was powered by a
1200 W generator.   The inverted V (80 Meter dipole @ 32', with included angle
of 120° stood up to the wind very nicely, and got out remarkably well.   But,
weather was the nemesis - High temperature reported was 48°F, but with wind of
25 MPH, and gusts higher, the temperature seemed absitively frigid.  Should have
brought a winter tent instead of a dining canopy.  Thanks to local ham, Bruce,
K9LOF who helped with a makeshift windbreak plus physical and moral support in
helping to set up and and tear down, plus some checking in every few hours to
make sure I wasn't frozen to the keyboard!  Actually, I took 10 minutes or so
off every hour to warm up with the heater in my car. That took time off the
actual operating time.  TNX to WN9O for VERMilion , and N8II for WV very near
the end of the 12 hours.
