This was a shakedown cruise prparing for the ARRL 160 next week. A new PC, new logging software (to me setting it up), and a new interface to the new K3. The first 5 hours were spent mostly finding what problem was causing intermittent keying (and then no keying) on the WinKey USB interface. So there was a lot of good EU opening that was lost. On top of that I had worked all day Friday so I gave in at 0900 Z. The 2nd night was a full one; 14 hours. Lots of stations heard that I could not contact. Probably another 15 more, and three zones, above the reported total in my score. These stations wre the Eastern EU and Western Russian stations plus the Far East this morning; VR, BA, BU etc. No VK heard. Both nights a lot of time was spent learning the MO for the K3 2nd RX and the diversity receiving. It was good time used. Thanks for all the contacts. 73 de Milt, N5IA
