Finally broke through the 40 QSO barrier!  With 9 Qs in the 1st 5 minutes, I
started having early fantasies of a 50+ NS experience.  Then I turned up the 40m
RX volume and tried SO2Ring, and lost momentum for a while which put me in
temporary gridlock.

Somehow, I have to get the audio problem with 2 radios resolved, and figure out
a way to be able to key both radios with the paddles without having to *also*
manually push the buttons on my Radio Shack headphone switch box I'm using for
the keylines.  Apologies for any QRM I caused on 20m several times while I
*thought* I was sending on 40m ;-(

Nice to see even more new folks show up this week, including our own NCCCers
K6TA and W6OAT (Tnx, Rusty, for Q #41 :-)  Most interesting, since Ken, Rusty &
I were QRV together in Mexico some 30 years ago.  Small world.  I think this was
also the 1st NS for Bill, K4LTA.  Welcome one and all.

K8AJS was loud this week for a change, but 5-land signals were down from last
week.  I heard more mini-pileups than before, but also got beat-up in most of

We had some discussion on the NCCC Net which followed the NS about maybe going
to a one-hour version when we launch the next NS series.  IMHO, the one tonight
went by wayyyyyy too fast.

Tnx to all for the QSOs!
