A DIFFERENT CQP. I started with two objectives. 1. W6SX Prime Directive. 2. 1000 QSOs. I wasn't expecting much considering how conditions have been lately. I made 1000 Qs Saturday and went to bed at 2230. Slept in until 0730. Got on twenty CW and was pleasantly surprised. Ran for an hour with decent rate. Then I ate breakfast followed by an hour constitutional with Sunshine Rhonda. The rest of Sunday, switching back and forth between CW and SSB, I got on and ran until it got boring and/or painful. Then I took a break. Turned out to be a fun approach. In the past, I've operated the whole twenty-four hours, and Sunday was always a drag. This time, taking lots of breaks, I was able to keep the rate decent. AND, I think I probably worked almost as many stations as if I had BIC'd. It was very nice to have so many Europeans call in on twenty, both Saturday and Sunday. My first CQP sweep in thirty-nine years of trying. A fun weekend.
