Club: Central Texas DX and Contest Club


We got 217 of the 254 Texas counties this year.  It was fun but it was a lot of
work as well.
Participation from around the country seemed better than last year.
We had a limited crew most of the time.  N5XJ, KU5B and NX5M were the full-time
guys again as usual.  NT5TU was able to spend 9 hours operating Saturday.  K5ZY
was a first time operator and spent a good 7 or so hours operating 15ssb.  NE5B
had limited time both days but was able to spend some time Saturday on 15ssb and
a couple of hours Sunday milking 10ssb for what it was worth.  W5JDG was only
able to be here Sunday so he got the 15m ssb chair for the 6 hours on Sunday.
We ran reduced power the whole weekend with some stations only at 100-200
This year, we used the club call of the CTDXCC (W5CT).  That took a little
getting used to as we are all so used to NX5M.  I caught myself several times
saying "Novem......nope, Whisky Five Charlie Tango".  At least when on cw I
could not make the same mistake. 
I would also like to mention that a few years ago when doing TQP for the first
time, the 15ssb operator was Dale, WA5GVE.  Not a contest-style operator but
Dale was a very fine individual.  It is unfortunate that earlier in the week
Dale became a silent key and one of the visual memories I have of Dale is him
sitting at the station operating with us.  Thanks for the q's over the years
Texas mobiles.......thanks for burning up the fuel.
