ARRL DX International CW (2017)

This was a pleasant change. In the past, I've lamented because they're a bunch of guys that operate from with varying abilities and we just never could get a good, solid team together. I guess the stars were in alignment, as we could not done any better with the number and abilities of the ops that participated. At the end, we still had 7 ops sitting in front of radios. This was the first time most of the ops dealt with the two stations on a band.

Had a pretty good time, overall. Had enough people and plenty of food. 160 meter 8 circle is still 'AOL'.  Frustrating! Beverages worked really well.  The recent work with filtering and switching paid off. Lots of QRN from far off thunder storms Saturday night.  Made things really tough at times on the low bands.  When the storms causing that thunder arrived on Sunday about 1700 UTC, the rain static from hard rains made things difficult on 15 and 20 meters.

Wx was a player in this weekend's operating. With the extreme cold, 4 operators could not make it due to wx related issues at home and another two to limit their time here. After receiving a few more inches of snow during the day Saturday, the snow turned to sleet in the evening. The 80 meter delta loop array collected ice and was detuned enough for us to quit using it. 15 meters showed a slight rise in reflected power, but not enough for concern.

Thanks for coming out!
Thanks to Steve and Carolyn for the great hospitality! And thanks to the resident Station Engineer Larry.

As we've frequently said before, it's always nice to have new folks operate with us. We has the same Carolina folks with us that did last year (W0UCE and N3ND) plus N1LN. It was great to have both Bills back from Lynchburg. As always the local group was fun, and had fun. Without them on Sunday afternoons, we wouldhave trouble covering bands after the traveling guys depart.

ARRL DX Contest - CW (2000)

First, and most importantly, everyone had GOBS of FUN! With three operating positions, originally considered doing M/2. Looked like there would be sufficient operators to keep each positioned manned most of the weekend, so decided to go M/M. Late Friday afternoon still having problems getting the radio interface to work at the third position.

With flares occuring later in the week we didn't know quite what to expect for the contest. In general the bands seemed to be quite good. 10 certainly could have been better, but we're thankful for the Qs we did make on that band, with many of them being skewed path Eur. Again very few station problems with the biggest one being a computer problem on 15.

Doing a M/M from NR4M brought back lots of old memories and generated a number of new ones. The new station is still under construction. We had four stations set up, with 10/80 and 15/160 sharing rigs. We used Win-Test for the first time. Beyond a few data entry glithes, it performed great throughout the weekend.

When things come together as they did at the Goat Farm (NR4M) over the weekend, the investment in time, building the station, begins to pay off! We had a terrific crew who really pounded the bands and had a huge amount of fun in the process!
