I was planning on operating the first 20 hrs of the contest with a few hrs off in the middle of the night. The goal of this contest was to get practice running on two bands at the same time. So did I meet that goal? Yeah, sure. I got the hang of things quite quickly. I was running 4 decoders (MMTTY/GRTTY/2Tone/2Tone) on each radio. I used 2 keyboards with N1MM+ and it was excellent. Absolutely excellent. The integration was perfect. There were a few station bugs that required constant restarting, and occasionally both radios would lock up, causing one to switch bands, but N1MM+ worked perfectly. About 20 minutes into the contest I received the devastating news that my dear friend K3LP had passed away. David had a big impact on me, and I am sure he is a hero for DXers all over. David was a true gentleman, always taking care of others before himself, always willing to help those in need. I'm tearing up writing this -- more later in this regard. David, if you're reading this, I'm gonna miss you buddy. Obviously, words cannot express how I am feeling right now. Now, that being said, David would have wanted me to get back on the radio, so that is what I did. After another 5 hours, and 500 QSOs, the amp on the left radio decided to stop amplifying. I'm not an SO1R RTTY fan, and was pretty saddened by David's death, so I packed it in. I miss David already. I hope others will join me in both NAQP CW and SSB using "David" as their name. I hope as a radio community we can create something to remember such a wonderful man. More to come in the following days. Miss you buddy.
