The score includes three 50 point bonus Qs. The NC4KW North Carolina Kilo Watt team had another successful NCQP outing. The band conditions were not exactly cooperative, but we still had a fun 10 hours of team building and a great time. It is always fun when we get together radio or no radio. 20 meters: Last year 20 meters was our big SSB band. This year we stayed on 20 SSB too long so not to miss the great opening that never occurred. Our CW total was down by 15 percent and our SSB total really took a hit being down by 85 percent. OUCH!!! 40 meters: 40 meters gave us a pretty good QSO count but very bad NC county multiplier count. Fortunately, we did well with State and Province multipliers. The skip was quite long and for the most part we could not hear NC at all. Yes, we made a few NC Qs, but not close to what we expected. Our CW total was down by 26 percent but our SSB total was slightly up by 8 percent. 80 meters: 80 meters gave us the best year over year results. We were able to quickly increase the very much needed NC county multipliers and even exceeded the sum of CW and SSB 2017 Q counts. For CW we were up by 66 percent and on SSB we were down by 26 percent but overall we were up by a very slim 23 Qs. With the big increase being CW it really helped our point total and overall score. When it was all done we had 105 multipliers in the log. 53 states and provinces and 51 counties and 1 DX even though we worked 16 countries. We also worked 3 of the 6 bonus stations. Perhaps we should have run high power, but that would not have helped hear NC stations on 20 or 40. What we could hear, we could work. A big thanks to the TEAM. Laurie N1YXU, Howie WA4PSC, Bill N8BR and me N1LN. We would also like to thank Marty, W4MY, and the rest of his NCQP team and sponsors for putting on another NCQP event. See you next year! 73 Bruce N1LN (aka NC4KW)
