Limited time due to 'life'. Thanks for all the Q's. Merry Christmas everyone.

ARRL 10-Meter Contest (2014)

Trying new stuff out. In the past, I've never had an antenna lower than 120 feet that I could turn and use in domestic contest.  That was really miserable.  Day before the contest, a friend gave me a 5 ele 10 meter yagi that K7SV and I got up the day  of the contest.

CQ Worldwide DX Contest, CW (2014)

The crew at The Goat Farm (NR4M) once again had a great time in the CQWWCW Contest. While every year it becomes more and more difficult to find operators available Thanksgiving weekend, we continued in the Multi/Multi category to give everyone plenty of time in the chair. At Goatville there is always  a desire to be as competitive as possible, but ensuring that everyone enjoys themselves is always important.

North American QSO Party, RTTY (2014)

Need L-O-W-E-R antennas on the high bands.


Wow! What a weekend.

Found the bands extremely friendly, so everyone found a place to operate.
There seemed to be an almost limitless supply of new stations the whole weekend.

Had two operators who had never operated RTTY at all, and one other that had done so one a limited, casual basis. Two others had never operated from the Goat Farm before, so there was there was a bit of a 'learning curve' for several ops.

Took one for 'The Gipper' I did not enjoy this. I started late, so I quit early (sounds fair...)
