Static crashes put a stop to my Friday night operating after just 4 hours.
I had an Excedrin headache to beat all Excedrin headaches. The static was
so loud it made even loud signals difficult to copy. I was forced to ask
for fills on virtually every QSO which was depressing and embarrassing.
Saturday night was better (just S7 - 10db over S9 noise!!) and I forced
myself to operate all night. Had a pre-contest goal of 1000 Q's and
obviously finished well short but am content considering the QRN.
Thanks for all the Q's!
73, Jerry, AB5SE
