Since adding a second tower and Bandpass filters, I've wanted to try a Multi Op
from my station. The NH QSO Party was the perfect opportunity and gave us a
chance to put the local Club call on the air. Plus we were a Bonus station.
The station performed flawlessly. Participation seemed to be down from previous
years but overall it was a huge success. Nice to see 10 meters continue to
provide good propagation.
Thanks to Neil, AE1P and Randy, N1KWF for making this an enjoyable weekend.
Also a big Thank You to Lee, my better half, for taking such great care of us.

Call: NM1JY Class: MOMT HP Total Score = 91,512
Ran kind of a mini multi with 2 Transmitters and was assisted for a few hours by
N1AA. Otherwise, ran both radios by myself! Got a late start by missing the
first 3 hours doing errands around the area. Arrived just in time to greet my
second op at 2 PM. Could not do any thing past 9:30 AM Sunday morning as I had
to attend to other things but it was fun to put one of the bonus stations on the
air for others. Had some fun moving some of the more competitive
out-of-state/country stations to other bands to help their totals. Our sister
station, W1WQM (another bonus station) had a larger crew of ops and did a nice
job introducing a number of newer hams to this side of the hobby.
Thanks to the many that called in - hope you were able to work all the counties

Cndx to AZ not very good from NH. QSB very heavy.
Call: W1END Class: SOST LP Total Score = 1,056
Lost the 20M band on my Butternut vertical and found the cause too late to fix
it in time. Thought I was shouting into an empty bucket on 10 & 15. 40M
had too much RTTY to make things go. Oh well, it was fun watching the snow
melt. Thanks to those who answered my CQs. We'll try again next year.

Score includs four CW QSOs with bonus stations.
Just wanted to announce that I felt the QSO Party was a success: I got my last
NH County (3rd time).

The increase in points came from working multiple club bonus stations on
different modes/bands. Decent activity from NH. See you next year.
