I had hoped to operate both nights but the red-eye flight Friday was too much and I slept in hopes of being good Saturday. The rig in place at ZF1A was a FT-767 which had defective sidetone. I swapped for the more familiar to me IC-756.  Luckily Andrew ZF2EJ came along and found the 6-pin power cord.... I was halfway through jury-rigging light duty alligator clips for my 12V delivery.  I also discovered we needed to deploy 450' of RG-6 for the SAL-20 array - Andrew made quick work of that in the now dark. Wiring up the DX Engineering RTR-2 rx ant switch was straightforward. SOunds like I shoulda been on Friday night for the better condx. Condx seemed a bit soft, using 100W and the ZF1A 2el wire beam. I didn't get a good run going until after my 1-4AM nap (admittedly I didn't over-try earlier). Normally EU is fairly easy from  ZF but I bagged just 4 EU (missed OK) and 9 Carib/SA.  I worked N2IC K0EU K0AV W7SE K0RF. Missed KS! NE ID DC.... heard DC and I heard my buddy K0WA working a 9 portanle in KS but didn't snag either.  K0RF was S&Ped while I was checking DX Summit on another screen, shortly b4 my nap  When he came back with  ?  after my report, I realized I'd sent  5NN KS   :-) ZF9CW was pleased when I called in for a mult. We're here just a week..... I hope to operate 1 or 2 more evenings.  Will try to advise when I go.  It's about 30 minute drive to ZF1A shack.  255 QSO   1307 pts   48 US/VE  13 DX    79,727 score
