I Began my 20M Mono-band effort right at 0000Z with wonderful propagation in all directions. At one time I ran a pileup that was open to EU/RU/JA simultaneously! As it got dark the conditions over the pole only improved! I stayed up till 2AM PDST and finally gave up and hit the rack as I couldn't keep my eyes open anymore. Woke up at 8AM Saturday morning with the band still cooking in all 3 directions plus now the Caribbean was in on the action as well. Slowly the skids fell of the propagation with the band very noisy. The openings over the pole are gone so I stopped around noon to take a needed nap after lunch.. I never quite made it back to the radio until midday Sunday as my energy reserves were depleted. Don't have the stamina I once had since my 6 day stay in the hospital back in Feb. With a bit over 2 hours left I am punting for now to come back another day. The June VHF QSO Party is coming up soon so I will bank up some energy reserves for that event. Thanks to all who worked me! The station here is an old IC-746 driving a AL-80B to 750W output into a home-brew 3ele 20M mono-band yagi (An EF Johnson HF array kit from 1954) up 43' atop a stack of AB-577 Heavy Duty Military Surplus Mast. I recently refurbished a 40+ yr old Fritzel FB-33 Tri-bander that's ready to mount atop another 30ft of heavy wall mil surplus Aluminum Mast in time for the Fall Contest season. I sure Could have used a 2nd 20M Yagi This weekend as the rotor got quite a workout! KB!! 73s from Nevada de Tim - K7XC - DM09jh... sk Adapt... Overcome... Succeed!
