Great contest and my best score ever. Our lunch group on Sunday grew even larger this year with 11 stations participating. We even had a club member activate the club callsign in the contest for the first time in well over 10 years. Things are certainly looking up here in WNY and FM activity certainly contributed to staying busy. I visited four grids (FN02, FN03, FN12, FN13) and made microwave contacts to EN92, FN02, FN03, FN04, FN12, FN13, FN14, FN31, and FM19 up to 2.3GHz. Best distance is about 280 miles to K1TEO, which seems to be close to my limit. My only 3.4G contact was with VE3ZV in EN92 which was a 100 mile path and was an easy contact at that. So it is clear that the 3.4G gear is working, just need a few more people with the band. No contacts at all on 10G. Luckily a club member contributed a 5G transverter he had unused in many years and we were able to put together a small 5G station for another local rover to use along with an unused FT-817 and a dish feed. We were at least able to activate the grids we visited. I wonder how much gear is out there going unused?
