Club: Potomac Valley Radio Club


My goal was to generate 1/2 million points for the PVRC club score.

This was entirely a casual S&P effort.  Saturday night I tried briefly to start
a run on 40 but went back to S&P for the rest of the contest.


1. Arrived home Friday night an hour into the contest after an overseas trip.
Put in 2 hours before arrival of my son, his wife, and our new granddaughter for
a brief one day visit.

2. Saturday morning operated entirely with voice keyer to avoid waking
granddaughter in next room.

3. Happy to see some 10-meter openings.

4. Very interesting 20-meter opening to JT, BY, etc. on 20 Saturday night when I
expected the band to be dead.

5. Good times:  Working B1Z on 40.  Finding and spotting a P29 on 40 before
anyone else and hearing the ensuing pileup and feeding frenzy, including the big

6. 160 and 80 didn't seem as good as I thought they would be at this point of
the sunspot cycle.
