A fun day in very snowy MN with the temp at or below zero all day! Any hope I had of going for 3 straight was dashed early on due to difficult conditions on 40, 20 didn't open for us in the northern counties until about 10, and the cold caused my screwdriver to over heat going to 80, so abandoned it early on except for the two first counties. In the afternoon it warmed enough that we could go down easier and found great results there the last 3 hours. The 1x1 calls were a lot of fun, but the vastly increased activity made it difficult for the weak mobiles to find cq spots. I never was able to just go back to where I was (when qsying down to 40 from 20) and expect to take right off. Great bunch of ops following us around and had 17 stations in the log 10 or more times, led by N2CU--30, K1RO AND WX4MT--19, K0AP--18, WA3HAE--17, WB2ABD AND NU0Q--15, W7GKF--14, AD8J, N8II, AND NW0M--13, W9OA--12, W2RR, OM2VL AND W1GL--11, and W8TM, K9NW, AND WF5X--10. How about OM2VL? 5/20, 5/40, and 1/80--all to a mobile in far Northern Minnesota!--amazing. Besides these, there were 16 more stations that had 7 or more Q's in the log. Thanks a lot to all of you folks! I'm very fortunate to have W0TVD as my good friend and fantastic driver. It was hard not to go back to Cook county, for the first time, but a committed group operated a multi op from there, and eliminating that extra 110 miles sure made the trip a lot easier. Thanks, John, N0IJ (N0L)
