A very fun contest. Operated the first 9 hours only. Due to plans to visit my parents for the weekend, I decided to delay the trip until Saturday and operate the first night of the contest. Due to high RFI at my place and no RX ants, I asked my neighbor K9RO (about 3 miles away) if I could op from his place. He has similar noise on his vertical, but has 3 sets of 1100 foot 2-wire beverages that really made the difference. The bad news is that his Mark V only has cascaded 250 Hz filters, so I had to constantly ride the RIT to hear people who were not exactly on my frequency. I'm sure I missed many, many people who called me off freq. Overall, a great time. I didn't want to go home and I really wanted to operate the second night. I have yet to ever operate this contest 'full' time, and this wes my biggest effort since 1996 at the old KS9K station. Maybe next year. (I say that all the time.) On another note, the foot is doing much better. The pain is down to more of a discomfort now. After two months off of work, I'm returning this week to mostly full time status. Next surgery was supposed to be today to remove the metal hardware, but is postponed two weeks so the bones can grow more. Overall, even with the two week setback, I think things are going well. I just wish I could start walking again or even put some weight on the foot. My good foot is sore from all that weight on one foot and my palms hurt from the darn crutches....hurts more than my bad foot...LOL. Hope to see y'all in the Stew Perry. Chad WE9V http://www.we9v.com
