> A big Thank You! to Tim, N6WIN, for the use of his fine station, and to his wife
> and their two children for sharing husband and father. Much appreciated!
> Tim has done well with limited space. There is a Cushcraft XM240 at 66' and a
> C31XR at 54' with an inverted vee for 80. A K3 drives an Acom 2000 and band
> decoding makes for effortless band changes.
> Conditions were not so bad, but the noise floor was unstable which made copying
> weaker signals a challenge. The first 30 minutes were pretty smooth, much of the
> next 210 minutes were hard work.
> 80 meters was very noisy. And I found more fills needed this time around on all
> My rates were 72, 73, 51, 64 which indicates I never really got a good rhythm
> going. The third hour suffered from a weakening 40 and my first QSY to 80 bore
> little fruit. My one 80 meter mult, KY, slipped back into the noise. Sorry,
> Dan, K4FXN, for not being able to complete the QSO.
> Mults were way down for me. I lost KY, heard WV in passing and never heard KL7,
> NV, UT, NE, ND, OK, AR, AL, VT, any VEs except VE3, or any NA DX.
> On the up side, the Sprint is so much fun hopping all over the bands with the
> best operators. Always a thrill!
> Congratulations to the Big Score Boys. Nice numbers!
> Taking a cue from Jack, W1WEF, maybe it's time I tried one of those 5 hour
> energy drinks before 00Z, hi!
> David, N6AN
