Rig: Icom IC-7610 Antenna: G5RV/ZS6BKW at 55 ft This contest did NOT go as planned. I was enjoying the band conditions and learning more about the IC-7610. About 0240z the SWR on my G5RV went way up. Not a good thing but I've seen it before, last summer. Using my nifty Rigexpert AA230-Pro analyzer, I had traced it to area of the barrel connector joining my two 100 foot sections of RG-8X feed line. I thought I had fixed it. Analyzer showed the same anomaly tonight. I went outside in the dark, 4 degree F weather and attempted to resolve the issue, but it was not to be. Too cold and so my contest had to end early. Why couldn't it have flaked out on Wednesday when I was on the 1900z CWT, so I could work on it on Thursday when it was 57 degrees out? It's always somethin', eh?
