A bit of futility and a lot of fun as well. Lost 160m within the first half hour of operating there. A strange RF feedback problem into the K3 audio circuit curtailed anything on topband but a few q's. Nothing experienced like this in the 9 years of doing M/2 here. Tried a bunch of fixes but no joy. Fun troubleshooting ahead. This wasn't the usual M/2 we have come to expect. There was only a small amount of time where two bands were truly productively run-able. But we can't expect much with the deteriorating cycle. 15m was the big surprise though. Before the contest, there was no way we predicted we would have over 1100 qso's. there. Exciting. Some highlights; 1)Unusually fine meals by xyl Sandy N7RQ, as well as two solid 15m op shifts too. 2) Listening to Dave K2SS run 40m JA's in Japanese brought back great memories when I met him 40 years ago. He was doing the same at the large MM's at both N2AA/K2GL and W2PV. 3)Mike KC7V hasn't lost his touch for digging deep and running hard. Always a pleasure to operate with him. Great runs into Eu and JA on 40 thru 15m bands. 4) Our "younger blood", Andy NY7N shows improvement every contest and probably had the best rate hour of the group for his 15m Eu runs both Saturday and Sunday. Fast talking and accurate dude. Great to have him involved in our ssb M/2 efforts 5) Me? I am a serviceable ssb op but realize that cw is really my deal. I do my modest ssb shifts and try to stay out of the way of these ssb pros. It works. 73, Bob K8IA Arizona Outlaws Contest Club
