Quiet band this year re geomagnetic storms.  Using OCF dipole 40 x 90 ft long at
35 ft fed with ladder line to 4:1 balun and coax to shack.  Elecraft K3 to Acom
1500 and XMatch tuner.  Extensive ground system under OCF dipole.  I Need to
get OCF higher or go to inverted L to get better vertical angle.  Thanks to
everyone for their politeness and commradery.  Signed off to sleep at 2am to
get up at 5:30 for sunrise, but a drunk driver hit a power pole at entrance to
our subdivision at 5:15am and we lost power for 8 hours!  So that's all she
wrote for the contest.  Thanks to all of you having fun.

Rick W4GE
