First real serious attempt at a single op CW
contest from a better QTH than mine. The extra
30' of tower really does make a difference. Learned
importance of moving mults and staying alert to
changing condx. We need to add some low band antennas
and EWE's and David will give the Pistol
 Plus stations
a run for their money!  My goal was 600 and 200, fell
short but know what to try to make it next time.
Second try at NAQP, can't wait for the next one!

P.S. Thanks a bunch David for the use of the station!!

Thanks all for the contacts!

Dont think booting from a floppy is what he had in mind !

Gee, what is this 1980. I played with 95 a while and went back to good ole
DOS and Win 3.1 for a while.I did get quite a few things to work but didnt
trust it with NA or CT.

Yup. Ran CT 9.23 on FIeld Day under Win95, on an IBM (honest!) 486DX66 
with 8 meg. Way I did it was to boot the machine from a Win95-created  boot
floppy. This gives you a DOS-type prompt, then just ran TSRs & CT  from the
prompt. Never had one glitch during the entire contest.

FYI - this was in the CW-only station at the Hudson Valley Contester's  and
DXers / W2XL 3A effort in ENY. The K5NA fiber-optic interface worked  GREAT,
, as usual. We're going to miss him...
