At 0415 UTC on December 30, the solar indices were: SFI=72 SSN=0 eSSN=-10 90 day SSN=8 K=1 I'm always amused when the effective SSN goes negative. This was a nice diversion on a very cold night with oil furnace problems which no one can figure out, so I have to get up in the middle of the night to reboot it. Having this happen on a long holiday weekend in the middle of a record cold spell is a bad break for me. It was one degree F here this New Year's Day morning. Back to the contest: I didn't work enough Canadians and very few RAC stations so my score suffered, but I did work almost everyone I heard. I ran more than usual for 47% of my QSOs, a new high for me. It didn't occur to me until later that I could have worked some SSB too and squeezed out a few more Qs and mults. Need to put that in my contest notes for next year. I just don't think phone. I don't know my time as N1MM+ said I started 4368 hours late, which is 364 days, but gave the starting date as July 1 for the RAC Canada Day contest, so nothing makes sense. Maybe I went though a time-space infundibulum. I no longer know how old I am. My guess is I spent about 7.5 hours on the air, not accounting for relativistic time dilation. WQ5OO had an absolutely booming signal here from Louisiana. That was N8OO incognito, but he needs a beter disguise. Thanks for the Qs on a very bleak weekend. 73, Ken, AB1J Flex 6500 N1MM+ Wire out the window over the back yard and down over a cliff to a sapling tree, counterpoise inside house LoTW eQSL ClubLog
