Mr. Murphy never misses an opportunity to make his presence known. Our VPN router started acting up moments after we ordered the doubling of our Internet connection speed. The speeds we then saw at the operating positions were actually LOWER than before. The higher speeds were just not making it through the router, leading to many crippling audio dropouts. Then, moments before the contest began, the antenna switchboard had a massive failure. Fortunately, we were able to "hard wire" around the antenna switchboard and had four positions on the air within 10 minutes of the contest start. The antenna switch was repaired and worked flawlessly for the rest of the contest. Audio dropouts eventually became less frequent and some very good rates were achieved. The team are all troopers and just kept peddling. It would be superfluous to mention the effects of solar disturbances, etc. Quite a bit of rough sledding for everyone. How laughable it is, to hear the speed queens running 36 wpm plus have to send their number 8 or 9 times, rather than simply slow down in view of rotten conditions. Happens every time. Our far flung team had nine ops operating remotely as follows: (*=PVRC Member) KU1CW-Washington W2UP-Colorado W4AAW*-Virginia NA3M*, K3TN*-Maryland KJ0D-Missouri W4TMO-North Carolina NA3D-New Jersey N3TOD Thanks to Alex, KU1CW for the use of his call for this one. Many thanks to CQ Magazine for sponsoring this great contest and for having a full time Contesting Column in each issue. Also, to all the contest participants, thanks for all the Qs and Mults. We are doing a major station rebuild this summer with new, additional towers, antennas, and further upgrades to our web interface and rigs. see:
