First real test of the last antenna work from the fall on a major cw dx contest.
Ran generator power as no power ran to the property yet. Hope to have by next
season. Wood stove kept the cabin warm as well.
Had to QRT for about 1.5 hours right in the middle of great EU run on 20m
Sunday morning due to lightening storm in the area. Great conditions on 15m as
others have noted with some really good EU and JA runs.
We were going to try to run a second station low power with some wires but
decided against it due to limited power from the 7kw max generator. Only used
packet a handful of times on cell phones because of no internet service at the
location yet. Found majority of non-run mults the "old fashioned way"
just tuning around S&P.
Thanks for all the Q's as well as some of the Kentucky Contest Group guys for
coming down to play at the station.
73's and look forward to the next one!
