Thanks for all of the arm twisting from Dennis N8IVN and Tim N3QE - my first ever foray into this contest. (Licensed since 59- Used to do 10 meter contest yearly plus some on DX Tests). Fun contest with involved exchange that is similar to SKCC contest exchanges BUT at much higher speeds. Observations per Tim's invitation: 1- Mainly a CW Keyboard contest- Not here- Bencher paddle ( rusty CW hand that got better, most of the time, as the contest went on), TS590 pre-programmed memories - dumped exchange memory after 2 hours- easier just sending exchange manually. Next year keyboard- gotta practice but first get 590 connected to the computer. 2.- Impossible to run on 20 and even 40 running only 100 W and a wire loop for 160 up 65 feet. Ran on 80 couple of times but most of test was S&P. Gave up on 15 early- NO amp, no beam, everyone chasing PR and VI, very deep QSB. 3. Lots of PVRC'ers Thank you for all of the QSO's.. Missed 1 continental and 2 Carrib Mults- No skimmer- just a lot of tuning and listening for the weak ones- especially the Hawaiian. 4. Who said CW was dead- Lots of relatively new licensees, amongst the majority of grey beards. Again , thanks for the encouragement and assistance. See you on the SS SSB - . See you next year for this one again for sure! 73 Phil
