N5AU managed to work me on 4 of 4 bands, WB8JUI had 3 plus SSB, many other
three banders. K5LH was very persistent and stuck it out in tougher conditions.
My apologies NO5W for repeatedly butchering his call. Fumble fingers hear had
trouble recouping from botched calls at times.
DX was plentiful on 20, many OK stations calling in. Probably the neatest QSO
was with HB9ELZ on 20 SSB. He wasn't in the contest and kept apologizing for
his poor English, but was very talkative and was excited I was in TN as he

Many thanks first to the guys behind the scene, K4KO and W9WI. They put in a
tremendous effort to keep this contest running smoothly, pre and post event.
Second, thanks to the team manning K4TCG this year, not sure about all the
calls involved, but they did a good job keeping the bonus station going.
Appreciate the turnout from, in no particular order, OH, GA, AL, NewE, CO, PA,
looks like some tough competition between the clubs. And, as always, thanks to
the road warriors!
Sure I missed some points and stuff, a bit road ragged as we're just off the
road in NY for a few days. BEAUTIFUL weekend driving weather!
No real changes to the station, the only different thing was the 80M dipole was
more of a V this year. 40 was the place to be, but 160 thru 20 were loads of
Thanks to all for the QSOs and patience and FUN!!
