First, a big thanks to my spouse Mary Jo for supporting my effort to "put up one last antenna" and for feeding me during the contest! Also kudos to CQ Magazine for running the best contest of the year! It was strange to start the contest on 80 meters. The 40 meter absorbtion on Europe started at 2300Z. 15 and 10 were poor here in the northern US. However, 80 and 160 were great thanks to my VE3DO loops and a new ground system under my verticals. The number of great ops continues to rise. The only downer was the continuation of some to sign their calls once every 10 minutes. 8P5A PJ2T PJ4A P40W P40Q V47NT and others get praises for signing their call during every QSO and having great QSO rates! Rigs: 2X IC765 TitanII amp (20 and 40) Henry 2KD Classic (80 and 15) LK500ZB (10 and 160) Antennas: 10/15 2/2 quad 83'/46' plus 2 el quad at 40' 20 3 el at 83' 40 rotary dipole at 70' 80 2 el wire vertical' 160 gamma fed 83' tower VE3DO loops at 50 degrees and 160 degrees CU next year!
