Equipment: FTDX-9000D + HF2500DX, FT1000MP-MKV + HF2500DX, SDR-14 + Skimmer Assisted: Packet + Skimmer Antennas: 10m - 7-el @ 70ft 15m - 7-el @ 100ft 20m - 6/6 @ 85/100ft 40m - 3el @ 145ft 80m - Rotatable Dipole @ 140ft / Two Phased Shunt-Fed 150ft Towers 160m - 1/2 wave Dipole @ 65ft / Two Phased Shunt-Fed 150ft Towers 3 x 900ft Beverages 20-10 - TA63M @ 55ft for Searching The Story: Have you ever had one of those weekends where things start bad, like missing the first two hours due to work commitments, then you get home get settled for a semi serious effort, and you turn on the radio and the low bands sound great, no noise, you can hear pretty much everything, all over EU, well it just got better from there.....Skimmer worked like a dream, and my M/2 station was set up for SO2R, utilizing the FT9k and a FT1K, the both worked flawlessly under the control of N1MM, the amps idled at 1500w all day, no problems there... The antennas turned when they were supposed to, just a great experience. 40/80/160 were surprisingly good here, as shown by the Q's I soon noticed that my score was climbing nicely, and was about to call it a night at 4am, get a few hours sleep, and return in the morning, well I did some math and thought at this rate I can challenge the K4 AA record set by N4RJ(KM9P) in '91 of 4,481,038 so that kept me in the chair and kept me going. Well here we are 46 hours later and apart from a couple of quick breaks and coffee and food from the wife, we have a score of 5,330,997. Hopefully the UBN's and Nil's won't hurt me too much so we will see... I had a great time, but boy do my ears ache and my head is spinning, and I can still hear code with the radio OFF.. This was the First serious (SO2R) operation of the new station and antenna farm here at NN4F, so watch out boys, we'll be around big time next year... Till the next big one... de Paul - NN4F 73
