Wow, what a blast !
Equipment used was an Elecraft K2/100 rig that I built in the fall. I cannot
say enough good things
about this little K2 rig.
Using WriteLog and a microHam keyer this radio really shined. The combination
of DSP and good IF
crystal filtering made the signals stand out on 160 where I really needed it as
I had extremely
bad atmospheric static for the entire evening.
Unfortunately, I missed much of the prime time (beginning two hours) of the
event. After a late
start, 15 meters was virtually empty here. It did not take me long to realize
that the mob moved
to 20. It seemed to me that folks were bailing out of the bands really quite
early and that
the 20 meter activity shifted to 40 early in the afternoon and so on with the
east coast leading
Thanks to all my Colorado friends who participated and thanks to all folks who
gave me a point.
Ski Bums #1 are the best !
