Well that was interesting.

This was supposed to be a mixed High Power M/S operation. It ended up as a
phone only 2 operator M/S effort.
The two CW ops were last minute cancels and that kind of set the tone for the

There were several equipment issues at the station and we ended up using 1
radio after some logging software - switching hardware problems so we went old
school for contest. Murphy was on speed dial I think!

Starting this contest at 5am local really sucks for this old guy and the bands
didn't cooperate for the first part of the contest. As a matter of fact they
were fairly lousey for SSB until Saturday night and by then we were burned out
and lost interest in continuing. We were operating to score some points for the
club towards our annual "Traveling Trophy" club competition with Western
Washington, British Columbia and Spokane. We accomplished that and had some fun
and it ended up being a laid back effort.

Highlight of the contest was when we worked Brad, K7ZSD, the station owner,
operating at RM3A Saturday night.

Thanks Brad and Ruth for letting us use the station while you were enjoying
yourselves at the WRTC festivities in Russia. We did clean-up after ourselves
and you really don't notice that the garage caught fire and burnt down! Just

Thanks to all who are in the log and see you all next season.

Ciao and 73

Hank/KR7X and Mark/W7ZB
