Wow, this sure was fun!  After going QRT in early 2006 and only having a mobile
out here in KH6 it sure was fun to have a tower up and to be in a contest

The antennas I ordered from M2 are somewhere on the Pacific on a container to
the Big Island so had to operate 80 meters.  In the past few weeks I have put
up four 2-element delta/quad loops strung from various ropes and Phillyastran
run from my new 150 foot tower.  

With only about a week on 75 out here to get my feel for propagation from KH6 I
decided to make a serious run for the Oceaniac SSB record.  After the first
night I knew I had a serious chance of breaking it.  By early Sunday morning I
had eclipsed the old 280K and finally wound up with my last QSO with DU9RG (a
new mult)with a 40K margin for error.

What a difference working the contest from out here!  After taking Europe for
granted for many years, it is a big struggle to even work zone 14 and 15 on the
short path.  I think I had four Europeans in the log.  However, the upside is
all those W/K stations now count for big points.  Plus the elusive Asian
countries and zones are easy.  You win some and lose some!

It was great working all my old friends back on the mainland after such a long
time off the air.  It's great to be back in contesting again.  A great big
mahalo (thank you) to everyone for the QSOs and all the spots.  See you all in
the CW affair.
