K3, 80/40/20 inverted vees at 25ft,CQ/X de NO5W

For me IARU started with a bang with my first QSO being with R0HQ but then it
settled in to mostly domestic QSOs for the rest of the morning and then on
Saturday afternoon it seemed like band conditions on 20 went totally to pot and
everyone disappeared. I was hoping that after returning from dinner with the XYL
that things would pick up on 40M and I wasn't disappointed with some good
openings into Europe, Africa, and South America. While 40M had a good bit of
QRN I was amazed at how well the noise blanker and noise reduction worked on
the K3. With the noise reduction set at 1-4 tuning across the open frequencies
on 40M you could hear nothing and then a signal would pop up out of the silent
background -- amazing. 

Thanks to all for the QSOs and for pulling my mediocre signal through the
QRM/QRN. It's always fun to work a contest with so many excellent CW ops.
