Club: Delaware-Lehigh ARC


I never expected that I would end up with more QSOs on phone than CW. I think
this is the first time that's ever happened for me in a multi-mode contest. 

Obviously, the high bands were challenging, and my relatively low inverted V
picked up a good deal of local noise at my suburban location.  I normally don't
run high power, and it was frustrating to know that there were many signals
momentarily emerging from that noise that I knew could hear me but that I
couldn't work. 

The other challenge arose when my 40M dipole failed (for lack of a better
description), but thankfully that happened with only an hour to go; the
vertical wasn't nearly as effective. 

That said, this was a really good time. Rates were much higher than I was
anticipating, and it was great to work so many stations on multiple bands and
modes. Thanks to everyone for all of the QSOs and to the folks at the Nittany
ARC for sponsoring the event. 

Rigs: K3, TS-940S
Amps: AL-80A (2)
1/2-sized K9AY RX array 
20M inverted v (apex @39 feet)
80-40-15M: multi-band dipole (average height: 35 feet)
80-160M: 1/4-wave inverted L

I'm already looking forward to next year!
