I operated about 7 hours and had 188 CW contacts. Worked all lower 48 except MT, NM, and MS. Just didn't hear them...


Operated as AD3X, 1D EPA

I operated about 7 hours as well. 15 was bad on Saturday, as was 20. We started hitting 20 last night, and then 80 was great. 15 lit up this morning for us, but overall the bands were crappy for us in Florida. I'm damned tired though-getting too old for this all night stuff. It is soooo much fun though...

The bands were crappy today. I think I only spent 10 minutes total on 15, and I never did get on 80. Worked 20 and 40. I actually got LAX on 40 last night, That band was in really good shape here. Glad to hear you had fun. It always is...


BTW, didn't find your station in the log ;T

Boy. I'll say it was a banner day. What kind of antennas did you use?

Very impressive setup. Our club used to do something similar, but club politics took over and those with all the toys took them and went home. One of the CW ops was awesome. He could work 2 radios at a time doing 35 wpm... unbelievable.

I worked quite a few ILs on both 40 and 20 CW. I wonder if I worked your group?

We busted a few radios this FD...

I was working N0GF 3A ND, and we made 171 phone contacts, and 250 some CW contacts. We had a sat station that didn't make any contacts, and probably about 5 GOTA contacts.

Did have local media though, and the ARRL section manager showed up.
