Sorry that some of the regulars - N5OE, K0VBU and K0OU - could not make it this
time. We missed you guys! Thanks to both W0JOE for staying up all night Friday
and to N5XR for staying up with me on Saturday night. We had four operators who
were there for the entire time and three others who were part time. Fortunately
the low bands were good since we were short on operators, and I didn't get too
bored or tired with only 6 hours of sleep since 5:00AM Friday morning.
No major problems...Northeast Beverage did not work until it was fixed on
Saturday afternoon. Sorry if we could not hear you on Friday night. Thought we
heard pretty well on 160M on Saturday night with the beverage working. Some
critter had gnawed the coax at the feedpoint. The amplifier on 20M went South on
Sunday morning but we used the BTI from 80M for the rest of the contest.
We played musical chairs a lot and even had a little SO2/3R going on at times
with the chairs rolling from one station to the other. Early Sunday morning we
really had it "cookin" on 15M. For a funny picture go to:
Many thanks for the contacts. We look forward to the next time, hopefully with
some improvements in the station. FYI - We are located about 30 miles South of
Branson, Missouri in Northwest Arkansas on a mountaintop.
