Hi Steve: Well OM, you whooped me good. 
Only 20 Qsos, operated mostly Sat, 2 hours on Sunday. 
I missed the first weekend entirely. 
Best for me was N3RG 192 miles. 
WA3GFZ FM29tk next best at 159 miles. 
K1RZ & W2RMA in FN21hb 57 on SSB 148 miles. Fun ! 
And now I know my gear really works ! 
Many thanks to Fred N1DPM for fixing my feed. 
-73 Ron WZ1V/1 FN31rg
