Planned to enter mixed mode, but the DX Doubler, NA logging program and laptop
computer have some problem and the computer locks up whenever you are on Phone
and try to change rigs. So, entered CW only for the first time in years.
Had the rotator control box burn up (power transformer?) Thursday night. Had
forgotten that I had a spare. So, beam wasn't "stuck" west for the contest
Band conditions had been very good for a few days prior to the contest, but
weren't so good for the contest. Understand I missed several mults on 10 M.
Didn't find it easy to check that band with the bandpass filters in. Need to
get a six pack to make it easier to change bands.
Had to QRT for about 25 minutes due to a thunderstorm early Saturday evening.
Rate held up well until about 09Z when I went 10 minutes without a QSO and
without finding a new station to call. Plenty of activity when resumed about
Missed the JAs. We didn't get our usual JA opening on Saturday morning. Worked
only two, one on 40 and one on 20, both of whom answered CQs. Never heard one
Thanks for all the QSOs. A lot of fun.
