TOTAL:380 q's, 58 counties
10m was a great band if I wanted to talk to people over the Pole, but it was
totally useless for generating q's to the left coast.
New QTH and the only aerial I had up was the GAP Titan. Not quite sure how
it survived being ripped down from the mast by 100mph winds a couple of
weeks ago. The quad loop blew down and was last seen blowing through
Kansas. 160m L decided high wind conditions were too much and gave up the
ghost, being elevated by 2'-3' shrubs didn't cut it.
Hanging last years 1'st place for Colorado CQP certificate was a great
motivator. Finally made all 58 CA counties..woo woo! A 6 call in Colorado is
the kiss of death for CQP. I had more NON-CA stations calling to work me
than I could handle. Coulda, woulda, shoulda used the /0. My hindsight
requires no corrective eyeware.
Tnx to all that heard me.
