Low band cond were great except for 5 hrs friday night on 80mtrs.
lost the prime time with s/9 plus noise level ...disappered 1hr past EU
sunrise ARGHHHH. Fantastic 40mtr cond. 20mtrs played well
execpt , as one N.E. contester is always saying  "big ant`s high are better
then little ant`s low" I beg to differ with him.  Our 20mtr project
being not complete . The high ant was fun but boy do we need a low and lower
one !!!   What can I say about 15mtrs. but with the # `s that
WWV broadcast  ' there is a GOD and he knows contesting" 10mtrs
point the ANT`s S.E. and hope.. a few , better than none showed.
   I have to Thank the guys for getting the station ready for CW not many
outside the FRC knew I was taken to the hosp. Thursday B-4 the WW phone with
a  lower back injury. I also have to thank the
one person who makes, all of it possible. My wife Leanora. Enduring many
weekends of ant. parties. and countless  nights of planning and preparation
sessions . Her words of encouragement as I lay on the hosp bed "you`ll  be
ready for CW " or " you never liked phone contests anyway"   The never ending
trays of food that arive in the shack with such regularity.  How she puts up
with this insain hobby
let alone the" MOTLEY CREW" as she`s dubbed us. is beyond me
But for this I am grateful.

Here in WI, at one of the BIG stations, we use a little old-fashioned Ham
ingenuity.  Several years ago, we picked up a used milking machine at a
hamfest. That way, each op gets his own orifice and when things slow down
in the middle of the night, the station owner flips the unit on.  If
you've ever milked a cow, you get the drift.
