Fortunately, the smoke from the California fires let up on the Wednesday before
CQP so I could launch my wire antennas in the mostly clear blue skies in Mammoth
Lakes, Mono County.  This year again I used dipoles for 40, 20 and 15 plus an
inverted V for 80.  They were all squeezed in at about 60ft between my two
favorite pine trees.

In spite of a couple of Murphy visits (RFI in my logging PC and tripping the
master circuit breaker causing a power outage during a nice CQP run) I achieved
one of my goals in making 1,000 CW QSOs.  I have never made 1,000 CW QSOs in any
contest so it was good to finally tick off a new milestone.

The good participation helped offset missing 10M and most of 15M during the
weekend.  I missed NT and ND for the sweep, but was happy to achieve good
results with a full-time effort minus about two hours for Murphy.  And many
thanks to the NCCC for sponsoring another great CQP!  And also thanks to Hank,
W6SX (we are about one-half mile apart in Mammoth) for helping me with my
antenna planning and sharing the bands during CQP.
