I was last on the air during the ARRL 10M Contest. Although I had retired in 2010 (then went to work teaching part-time) and again in May 2016, I was enticed back to full time work as the "Interim" Provost at the University of Houston - Victoria. It has turned out to be a longer interim than I thought and my wife and I have decide to make Victoria our home. It was hard to leave Alpine, in West Texas, after 42 years, but Victoria is much closer to Austin where our children and grandchildren live. I plan to return to Alpine for CW Sweepstakes next fall. We love vacationing in ZF and I like to operate here when possible. I usually operate from here as part of a multi-operation, but this one turned out be a single op. I had a great time, but was terribly tired after my first 14 hour shift. (It makes me marvel all the more at John, K6AM's ability to operate for 48 straight hours from this station on more than one occasion.) I switched my plan and instead of taking a 6 hour break at the end of a certain time, I took shorter one-hour breaks whenever I got too tired. The ZF1A station continues to operate well (in fact has been improved since I was last here), and I thank Andrew, ZF1EJ, for the use of the station and John, ZF1DJ, for his assistance in gaining access.
