CONGRATS TO N2IC FOR THE HUGE SCORE!!!
I posted some pictures of the setup at http://www.qsl.net/n2nl/k1pt.htm
all I can say, is "wow!". W4AN M/S with 1850 QSO's? amazing. Almost like NAQP
Best conditions I've ever seen in a NAQP. Hindsight is always 20/20 but
looking at my log, I missed about 3-4 easy mults on both 80 and 160 which I
could have and should have moved there. 300 mults would have been really cool.
At the time I figured they would be easy later but weren't. Thanks for all the
moves, especially to ZF2NT who moved to 5 bands for me in less than 2 minutes.
I should have gone for all 6 but I brain farted.
Working SO2R is a blast in this contest. I think it is the one of the best
contests for improving and using SO2R skills. Paul's station improvements
toward automation and SO2R since the last time I operated from there were
2115-2146 (due to the discovery of RF screwing up keying when transmitting on
20m - a toroid quickly fixed it)
2331-0013 (I caught myself getting lazy and slacking on the 2nd station so I
decided it was a goot time for a break)
0330-0426 (I worked much of the east coast mults on 80/160 but few west coast.
I figured to take my time off now so I'd possibly have a better chance to work
the west coast stuff later. I did work alot of new mults at the end but the
rate was slower, so I guess it was a trade-off)
I added my offtime up after the contest and discovered I accidently took 9
minutes more off than I needed. Darn!!!
BIG CONGRATS TO N2IC ONCE AGAIN FOR RAISING THE BAR TO A NEW LEVEL!
