FT1000MP, Alpha 78, 1 KW, tee vertical fed through MFJ 984 tuner. Wonderful conditions the first night including many strong European signals. Poor conditions the second night with QRN from a front moving through our area. We only got light rain here. Good conditions for the last 90 minutes. Missed VE5, VE8, VO, Heard VO1HP, but he was always calling someone else, Worked all states except AK, but including HI. On the first night, Microsoft took over my logging computer for 1 1/2 hours to update Windows 10. Nothing I tried would stop it, including turning off the computer and unplugging power. It just started up again as soon as the computer restarted. I had to log times, calls, and sections on paper for that period of time, 145 QSOs. As soon as MS was finished, I typed those calls into N1MM so I would have them for dup checking and multipliers, but the dates and times were all wrong. It took me 45 minutes after the contest was over to edit the Cabrillo file to make the dates/times right again. Lesson learned is not to be connected to the internet during a contest if you are not using the computer for spotting. I don't know what the solution is if you are using computer spotting. Thanks for all QSOs. 73, John, K4BAI.
