A part-time 14 hour effort here for the purposes of checking out the DX ability of some new portable antennas w/o offending the local HOA too much, trying to snag some new DXCC entities, and getting some additional seat time with the N1MM logger. Set up a 40 meter ground plane with elevated radials and used an end-fed sloper on 20 tied to a Jackite pole on top. They played reasonably well except for the unexpected snow storm on Friday night, when I had to go out 3 times to remove snow and reconnect some of the radials. Main 40 ft. Spiderbeam mast bent severely under snow load but righted itself on Saturday. Rig was single K3 at 100W. 40 was great, and open well after daylight. Heard stronger signals from Europe on that band than on 20. Most of stations worked to the east on 20 were Mediteranian and African rather than northern Europe. Overall, the weekend was a sucess, with some good OJT on N1MM and a few new countries added to the log. 73 Craig
