I agree with Lloyd KH6LC when he said "...this one was BRUTAL. While signals seemed strong enough, our static crashes ran S7 to S9 almost continuously." And from the middle of an ocean, thousands of miles from the mainland, most signals aren't that strong, so pulling out each and every station was a struggle. I thought the man-made QRN from my WI QTH was bad, but this was worse, compounded by the weakened signals. Okay, enough complaining. It was great to spend another two weeks on the island. This effort was almost entirely the first night. Thanks to everyone for the QSOs, and apologies if it took forever to pull your call/exchange out of the QRN, or didn't hear you at all. Maybe next time. The antennas worked great, thanks to tons of modeling by Mike, and only a little wiring up of the "Chad Box". Thanks for the honor, Mike. And another gigantic thank you to Alex and Michelle for their hospitality, even in their absence. MELE KALIKIMAKA! 73, Chad WE9V
