Band by Band Story
The inverted l's were working up to par after having a bad matching section
on CW which marred their usual good performance. Only disappointment was not
being to hear or work some of the Juicy multipliers that our competitor to
the west did.
First time effort at RM by WB2K and he did a good job there. One of our
usual operators, WM2H, operated at W3LPL since he's now living in MD.
Big problems trying to find a semiclear receive frequency.
The Money band was operated by who else - N2AA. He was ably assisted
primarily by W2RQ.
We were only able to run Europe Saturday. First qso with Italy was with the
beams pointed south east.
Most of the qso's were on Sunday.
Overall we're quite pleased with our results, especially since 2 weeks
previously we didn't even know who our ops would be or what category we would
enter. N2NT and KZ2S - RM regulars, operated at N2NT's station. The
operations fate was sealed however when N2AA and W2RQ agreed to come down and
operate 20. Without good ops there we knew our goose would be cooked. For
much of Sunday daylight hours we only had 3 ops with the others catching some
