The propagation was great this week end, unfortunately I had a lot of
atmospheric noise from the storms across the south and some local noise.  The
K3 noise blanker did a nice job with the local noise and a lot of signals were
strong enough to over come the atmospheric noise.  I couldn't find a ND, SD or
DC to complete the US sweep, but I did work KL7RA, KH6AT and KH6ZM.  The best
catch of the contest was PY0F on Fernando de Noronha, a new 160 entity for me. 
Other new ones were CT3FN, EF8M, HC2SL and OU1VR to make 87 total.  Maybe one of
these days I will be able to add top band to my DXCC bands.

Rig here is Elecraft K3 and Dentron Clipperton L.  Antenna is an inverted L
with a 60 ft vertical leg.  Software was N1MM and keyer WinKeyer USB.

Great weekend for Top Band.  Lots of Fun!
