North American QSO Party, CW - January (2019)

This was a last minute thing, that turned out to be as much about 'Elmering', as
operating. Arnie is a good listener and understands things well.

(I would call him 'smart' or 'intelligent', but then again, there is the story
of going INTO a small cave after a bear, while hunting. I think I will find it
hard to use those two words, and maybe other, when describing Arnie.)

NR4M ARRL 160-Meter Contest (2018)

Well, this was really a messed up contest for me.  I have no clue how I did this well.

Normally, I do not do much, if any, of a write-up, but this time I thought it might be worth an explanation of ‘Mr. Murphy’s’ visit.

WAE DX Contest, CW (2018)

Contest started out well enough, I suppose. With a new rule this year that
requires competitive stations to have an audio file of their operating
AVAILABLE, if needed, I suppose. I used Audacity (freeware from the web) and it
seemed to work well enough, but it each computers on-board sound card, were 'all
over the place' as far as getting settings correct, and, hopefully, the same.
We'll see...

CQWW WPX Contest, CW (2018)

Terrible thunderstorms both nights forced us off the air for hours at a time. And, to boot, network issues forced us to shut down in order get things working again. Unconnected co-ax's were 'snapping' because of electricity in the air. Not a comfortable feeling. This 'off time' really killed us.

ARRL DX CW de NR4M M/M (2018)

As always, a big part of any of our contesting efforts is enjoying the camaraderie of those with a like passion for contesting, especially CW contesting. The spirit of camaraderie was in abundance this weekend. We had a guest op, Don, K6ZO, who we met at the Richmond hamfest. He rode down from DC to spend the weekend in front of a radio. We also had Matt, W4GO, come by on Saturday, to meet the gang and get a feel for the station.
