Not one of my favorite contests. I get screwed up on the moving, mostly because I forget the I MUST hit return to save the log info prior to moving from a contact when I'm using N1MM logger. On Corn Whisky i don't have this problem, because I key the rig and use Enter Sends Message so I don't have to thimk about this "quirk" of the logging software. And, I don't like flapping my jaws to make contacts anyway, since for about 5 or more years while a school kid I didn't have enough $$'s for a modumation transformer or anything similar back in the "just after sp*rk daze" so Corn Whisky became a second language. Anyway, I hope I made more than 1 valid Q dring this event, so that I will exceed the score of 1 which I managed for the spring event. :) Local and atmospheric noise, compounded by rapidly changing skip and skip zones (QSB) made things tough for QRP. One notable try was with KA9FOX. I must have found him half a dozen times on 80 meters. At least three time he was able to decipher my call, and i'd get his info. But, by the time I sent mine, sometimes in duplicate, my signals would fade out, or local noise would hit his receiver, and he never showed in my log. There were others of note, who patiently asked for multiple repeats, and finally I made it into their logs. Thanks to everyone who stayed with my puny signal. It actually "kept me going" considerably longer than I normally would for a phone contest.
