My weekend and enthusiasm were shortened by station problems.  I opened on 10
then moved to 15. Both stayed opened so long that I next went to 40 for closer
multipliers.  By the the time I got to 20 the first night, most folks had moved
to 40, however, it was worth the trip to pick up AK.  On the second day, I had
worked most of the CQ'ing stations already on the other bands, and holding a
frequency (that worked) was difficult on 20, especially with my rig's
intermittent operation.  So I spent much of my time in S&P mode until throwing
in the towel.  My dream goal was a sweep - next year ...

1) Ten-Tec OMNI 6 Plus
2) HyGain Explorer-14 tribander at 45 feet
3) Inverted doublet, peak at 40 feet, 60 feet per leg, ladder line and tuner.
