This may be the best showing ever of what Milt Jensen, N5IA, accomplished when he built the 160m 8-Circle antenna over a 4-year period. There was some doubt going into the weekend of whether Internet issues with CW keying and ongoing problems with the Beverage rx antenna switching network would stop the Milt Jensen Memorial Station from operating. However, thanks to heroic efforts by Ned, AA7A, the Beverage antenna switcher came out of surgery in good condition a few days before the contest. Testing of the CW keying resulted in minimal distortion with revised RRC settings and multiple reboots of the station router. We had a marginal opening to Europe on night 1 and a poor opening to Asia that followed. However, Day 2 brought amazing openings to both parts of the world and more 10 point QSOs than we have ever had in this contest. Thanks to all for the QSOs and great participation. We will continue improving the station for reliability and even better scores in the future. Our excellent results could not have been achieved without a great team effort with my fellow operators -- Fred, NA2U, and Ned, AA7A. 73, Lee, KY7M
