My wife asked me this afternoon if this was the last contest for a while and I told her to ask me again next Sunday.
It’s been 24 years since I last did this contest. What a grind mentally with the QRM and weak signals, I was begging for it to be over by mid morning Sunday. Other modes and contests seem so relaxing in comparison – get the callsign and your done or nearly done. It’s amazing to me that the very piece of information you need can be obscured time and time again….QRMd, faded out, or not otherwise copied.
Missed PE and NT. I worked a bunch of NNY (NM2O! ) too – so, I think the section was well represented this year.
Thanks to everyone for all the contacts. And thanks to the guys at Remote Ham Radio for getting me set up to do this contest from NNY. I’ve got a nice thing going doing SSB contests remote and doing RTTY and CW contests from my home station with my more limited antennas.
I had some tech issues originating with both my internet connection and an intermittent VOX that really slowed things down particularly Saturday night. Lost the 80/20m/15m amp on Sunday – dead w/no output
Happy Thanksgiving and GL in WW
