I picked a great contest to try SO2R for the first time. I would have surely
fallen asleep had it not been for the second radio! Yikes who turned off the

I thought I would use the second rig barefoot...just an all band vertical + poor
band conditions = bad idea! There was a perfectly fine (borrowed for ARRL DX)
ACOM1000 still sitting on the shelf. It took five minutes to set up and it took
up a good chunk of desk space, but that was a real bonus.

The SO2R controller I built from scratch really worked well. I never REALLY knew
how long a CQ was until Saturday! Man I don't know what I am going to do when I
only have one radio to use. I ended up with 1092 Qs on the run radio and 221 on
the second.

I need to clear my conscience and apologize for my behavior on early Sunday

best behavior. I could blame being really tired (which I was an am now as I
write this at midnight with only 4 hours sleep this 48), but that is no excuse
for being rude. I don't know if I was a total jerk, but I feel bad about it. So
if the contester who I was "being hard to play with" reads this please accept my
