Operated all night Friday and into Saturday morning until we left to see family the whole day. Left Saturday morning at 1500Z with 400Q. I took a nap in the car because I did not sleep that night. I took a nap when we got down there and enjoyed the visit after the nap. I still felt sleepy, but I could keep my eyes open now. We ate dinner and played a game of canasta with my uncle, sister, and grandma. We left at 9PM and got home around 1030PM and operated the whole night and into the morning hours again. It was very slow, but thankfully for the TV in the shack I watched a few shows and Nets encore! A TV in the shack definitely helps during the sllllloooowwww hours. I took a quick nap at 6AM till 9PM. Somehow I woke up on time...20M was wide open. I tryed running for a few and it worked until a Z4 station thought he could operate on a freq. .2 away. I got on 15M and got some EU and quite a few AF stations. My goal after realizing I could not operate the whole weekend was to do better than last year. This seemed tough considering I missed half the day Saturday. Sunday morning provided many multipliers and finally got over the 1Meg mark late afternoon. My dad provided many multipliers and kept the station on when I was off and Friday night also. Have identical numbers from last years CQ WW. Hopefully it will stay above 1M this time after log checking.
