Wow what a hot qso party! Really! the hottest wx of summer so far! This
 was my 2nd year in KQP and upped the score by almost 50k! And solo!  
 Sat. went smooth and as planned ,even got ahead one county on my sked. 
 But Sun. was a stress test. Left the home QTH with a half-baked plan 
 and at the first stop on the Linn-Bourbon line, good old murphy froze 
 up N1MM while on 15m.Worked perfect the day before....what the heck? 
 So I avoided 15m and more freeze ups and it cost me my goal of 1000 
 q's as i had hoped . Looked possible by Sat. nite and I came close ,  
 but not to be.. I have yet to break 1k qso's in any contest. Maybe 
 another time. I tried some fone  cq'ing but my patience is poor so 
 when five or ten calls goes unanswered I tend to move on. So this time 
 all CW again.      Another fine job of coordinating by Bob 
 (W0BH) as he has done in the past.  Heard a lot of qso's going on 
 while i motored from site to site. I couldn't help but think a lot of 
 op time was being wasted ,but that's solo- rover life!   Most 
 of the countyline stops i found had powerlines overhead  so I had 
 trouble with lighter signals and I'm sorry for that. Those powerpoles 
 are hard to see on google maps hihi..I searched out each stop and 
 pinned it on my iphone and that worked really well. Even gave me the 
 E.T.A. to pinned site. Our age of electronics is amazing but when your 
 PC freezes..........oh well.                 Hey I hope everybody had 
 a good time , will be fun to read all the soapbox stories! 73 til next 
 time Mark W0E/ KI0I
