A few fun hours on the radio!

Just over 2-1/2 hours on the air. Had no working antennas Saturday morning, so
job #1 was fixing my broken 160M TX antenna. Early in the contest, I tried to
load it on the high bands with a tuner, but after only one QSO on 15M, I gave
up and attached a 20M 1/4-wave wire to the same feedpoint and made some QSOs.
Felt like I was QRP. Added wire to make a 40M inv-L and worked a few stations
on 40 and 15 before quitting with just 1.1 hours ON time. Back in shack for the
last hour-and-a-half: 15 min. on 40, then spent the last 1-1/4 hours on 160 with
a real antenna, but only 3 of my 6 Beverages (others still broken due to ice,
snow and deer). More work to do before CQWW 160...

73, Gary
