Friday night and Saturday were going great. At 08:47Z I called and worked VP6DX
on 80. He was my 3rd contact on 80 after working KL7RA and KH6NF. I can still
hardly believe that on my 40 meter Delta Loop. I also worked VP6DX on 15 at
2043Z, immediately after having worked T32OU, using the indoor coaxial dipole
that is mounted on the center ceiling beam of my mobile home. Saturday evening
however I worked EA8EA, AL1G, V31UZ and V31TP on 40 just before my dinner
break. When I came back, there on 40 was VP6DX! In a total lapse of "band plan
discipline" I spent 3 hours trying to break the pile-up, and never succeeded. I
figure I probably cost myself about 30 Q's. When I finally came to my senses, I
worked PJ4O on 40. He was really low speed. I had to slow down for him. He
asked me to move to 80, something I've never done before. I came up on 3545,
the designated frequency, I guess they're a Multi Transmitter station with a
much faster operator, and I worked him on the first call. The first SA station
I've ever worked on 80 with the Delta Loop. 73's to all, and to all a good
night. Bert, K6CSL "The little station in Riverbank"
