This will be a CW only submission but I did work a few that asked me to QSY to SSB. I had to work late on Friday so I also started out with NIL until Saturday morning. My first contest QSO came at 1828z and last fell into the log at 2342z, Saturday. Saturday was tough but that's contesting. Saturday was even a bit harder due to QRN as a direct result of 40 mph wind gusts that day. I watched our temperature go from -21F to +20F in a matter of a few hours thanks to the arrival of the SE wind flow. The last four hours of Sunday showed my best rates all weekend. I had higher hopes for the last big contest of 2012, as I didn't even hit the 50% mark from what I was able to accomplished last year. I think the most notable points with this contest was the crazy propagation and QSB. The QSB was intense at times and stations would call and then disappear. I was low power so like many, I had multipliers CQ in my face to no avail. I missed more than I care to list. Happy Holidays to all and I hope to find my way into a few logs as this contest season continues into 2013. I have no valid complaints about this contest as 378 QSO's are better than none, which was the case only a few years ago. I predict that 2013 will be the year of change for this station. But for now, it's time to enjoy the holiday season and from our shack to yours, on behalf of KL8SU and myself, Seasons Greetings from Alaska! May many new multipliers and entities fall easily into your logbooks in 2013.
