This was another last minute remote operation from NX6T in Fallbrook, Ca. (aka "NashVille"), although I was in the SF Bay Area at the time. Everything checked out before hand except I didn't check WINKEY's keying of the radio; which I discovered (at 12:05z) it could not do as the COM4 serial port was out and no one for miles available to see if the cable fell out or if there was some other problem. The solution was macro/keyboard keying by the RCForb remote access software. After awhile I became comfortable enough with jumping between the VNC viewer screen (to log under N1MM+)and RCForb to key the transmitter. I purposely ran increasing amounts of high power to verify a new air conditioning system for the shack was working properly. When it gets too hot STN-1's Toshiba laptop overheats and shuts itself off. This weekend after rebooting the laptop (in a hopeless attempt to revive COM4), the computer itself operated flawlessly; although I can't necessarily make that claim about the operator. I loved hearing all the EA stations. I only wish there had been 5X as many. 40 meters was WIDE OPEN to Spain, so the lack of Spanish participation surprised me.
