That was a fun 12 hours. I don’t think we left much on the table that we should have worked except for a couple of 20 meter mults. We just could not get in the logs for Rhode Island and Delaware on 20 meters. Also, due to the S7 " S9 low band noise level and QRN west coast 80 and 160 Qs (and mults) were lower than desired. The beverages helped us hear them, but they could not hear us. However, when looking back on 2016 this was a much better performance with an overall score increase of 47%. This increase can be attributed to having some enjoyable 10 and 15 meter openings. One of the fun parts to this year was watching the real time reporting. For the first 7 hours of the contest the lead shifted from Marko’s California team (N5ZO) to our team numerous times. This lead could be as low as less than 100 points or as high as several thousand for either team. It was fun to watch and really kept us focused. Then, due to the 3 hour east coast sunset advantage, we went to 80 meters long before they could. Our rate was fantastic and the multiplier and QSO counts jumped up. This also happened when we moved to 160. However, by the end of the 12 hours the mult, qso and overall scores came much more inline. I believe if the contest lasted another 2 hours the final score advantage would be reversed. Thanks to everyone for the many Qs, repeats and patience. Special thanks to the rest of the NC4KW team for making the August 2017 NAQP-CW a real fun time. 73 from team JACK! Nate " N4YDU Dan " N3ND Mike " N4GU Bruce " N1LN
