This Sweepstakes proved me wrong on a number of big issues. * First, I had expected to do better than last year and get back abouve 1,000 Qs. WRONG. QSOs about the same. * Second, I kinda expected the bands to be similar both days. WRONG. Saturday was very different than Sunday. On Saturday I could hardly but a 40M QSO. On Sunday, 40M was my money band. Sunday was slower than dirt this year. * Third, I did a lot of antenna testing on the RBN to see what I could expect from my antennas. WRONG. Didn't help. Performance was very different this weekend. * Fourth, I decided to go little "old school" and operate unassisted. Thought it would be fun. WRONG. Doing any measure of SO2R is really difficult without spotting assistance in a contest where you only get to work a station once. And my tuning wrist is sore. Not fun. * And Lastly, I did not expect a sweep figuring VI and PR wouldn't be there. WRONG. My last section was NNY one hour before the end. And I did get the sweep. Other than that, I guess it was fun.
