Welcome to 10 meters at solar minimum. Just as it did last year, on Friday evening the band opened for us all over the US west, midwest, and part of the south. Almost 100 QSOs went in the log, the last one at 0720z, which is 7 hours after our sunset! Saturday was not as beautiful, about 30 Q's and we added several South American multipliers. Sunday netted 8, count 'em, 8 QSOs. The day was occupied by lots of conversation and work on the Sunday crossword as we sat and listened to the automatic CQs roll and kept an eye on the panadapter. The 7 hour op time is what the software reported, but there were many zero-Q hours spent at the radio. We had a couple visits from Murphy at the beginning. The "Windows 10" creators update was pending to install on the shack computer. Not realizing that it would take over an hour to install, I let it run. Oops. When I realized the mistake I scrambled up a laptop that I keep N1MM up to date on, swapped a few plugs, and was only a few minutes late getting started. Then after a while the "ERR 12V" message started showing up on my K3. It's an old one, #486, so I think it's due for the gold pin mod next week. So the K3 ran at low power with the amp in line to bring us up to 100 W. K3 + DB-18 up 65 feet. 73 from the Tualatin Valley Contesters.
