I knew this one would be different when I answered K6GV's CQ INT at 0101Z --
Eric was so excited he decided to start an hour early! 40 and 80 were both
real long an hour before the test -- I was hearing DJ7AA on 80 and 5R8FK on
40 -- but 40 was THE band. 103 on 40, 3 on 80, only mistaken for N6AW once
Highlight was working ZS6CAX <his nr 28, I believe.>
Lowlights included 1) getting stomped a lot by N0AX on 40 <I need a higher
antenna>, 2) trying to copy YEAHRIGHT from W2JJ who was S1.5 (and I didn't
use MERRYEXEMS because I thought it would be too tough), and 3) trying to
convince TR to accept WN3K as a name. Not only wouldn't it, but when I
re-typed it as WINK, it somehow morphed WINK into PGM TREE, then PGM.
Weird. Sorry for the mutated names, guys. I'll report all the gory details
Great activity again -- why can't we do this four times a year? Will miss
Stew Perry, see you in NAQP CW.
