South from WA to CA...
...and the score went south too.

What happened to me on 20m?  I lost all the 
pileups, no answers to CQs, people CQing in 
my face! I know QRP is tough - but I usually do 
better! Finally, with a miserable 9 QSOs in 
15 minutes, I switched to 40m and discovered 
the problem - WRONG ANTENNA SELECTED! Arrghh!

The proof was getting twice the rate on 40m 
with 14 QSOs in 10 minutes. That's more like it!

Still trying to catch up, I went to 80m for 
4 QSOs in 3 minutes.

I saved a minute for 160m, but nothing heard, 
and infinite SWR, so I guess no antenna...

Dang! My own operator error ruined the score 
tonight. Anyway, AFTER 20m it was fun again,
so thanks, and see you next week.

K6UFO Mork CA!
