I felt honored and excited to operate as a bonus station and activate a special call sign for the 90th anniversary celebration of a truly special group known as the Frankford Radio Club of which I've been a member for 51 years. Its been a fun ride. I normally do cw only for the majority of domestic contests but I know I needed to go both modes to work as many stations as possible and at the same time get the brain and ears prepared for CQWW SSB in two weeks. I do enjoy phone in the domestic contests and had fun working a lot of the other cw guys I contact so many many times. But phone and contesting also brings certain joyful qualities out of some of the ops you run across. I had only made five phone Q's and stirred up some nasty hornets and I was only s&p at the time. Had a 2nd occurrence of hornets on Sunday too, hi. I hit my goal of 1000 Q's but I needed just one more mult to break 200K - drat! Missed 2 counties for a sweep - CRN & MIF. There was another TIO station on but they aren't real contesters and I doubt they were on cw. I wrkd them and they were very weak here. They never post scores to 3830 that I know of and not sure they even send the scores in. They use the local radio club call. On Saturday I had to QRT for my tree guy to take down a damaged leaning tree that was a few feet from my hexbeam. We thought it was a good idea to take the hex down so had to work 20 with my 80m inv vee. Sure wish it got done last weekend instead, or earlier, hi. This was a fun event this year. I'll probably do mixed mode more often, hi. Tnx to everyone who ran across me and called in.
