Wow, was that a ride or what? I have been primarily off the air for the last three months or so and just got my beam back up where it's supposed to be after repairing it (nearly got beat out by the WX). Went to QSY to 10 meters in an attempt to work K3LR, but I could not hear them. Oddly enough, I saw some activity on the band and Saturday was the highlight for me. Working as much as I did on ten meters was the ultimate highlight for me. I love this contest but to bang out 128 contacts on 10 meters was AWESOME! Not a lot by lower 48 standards I'm sure, but I'm tickled to get some new countries and states on that band. Prior to this contest, I had 19 states on 10, so once my LOTW upload completes, hopefully that number will increase. I worked only a handful on Sunday but the openings were very brief and were few and far between. It was great to be back on the air and also to encounter so many familiar callsigns and friends. This was a part time effort for me due to holiday weekend commitments and getting the station back together (still can only run low power on 15 meters). Congrats to the other Alaska stations as I see some great scores posted. Getting cold and dark up here so it's easy to spend hours behind the rig, unlike summer. Thanks for all the contacts and sorry to those I missed. Still trying to work on my CW speed and learning to manage more than a few calling at one time. 73, Phil KL8DX Denali National Park, Alaska Work Website: Personal Website: Personal Blog: Rig: Icom 756PRO Amp: Ameritron AL-1500 Antenna: Mosley TA-34-XL @ 43 feet (10-15-20) Vertical: 5BTV, Ground Mounted Wires: Inverted V's for 40 & 80 meters
