Sure was great to have the core NR4M team back together again. WK3W and his son
Henry operated with us for a while as well. If one doesn't count not getting
the 160 antenna to work as being a Murphy visit, the only place we saw the
bugger was in the computers (of course). Once the contest ended Steve NR4M
found a bad CAT5 cable on the machine that was giving us fits! The 160 antenna
was resonant at 1600khz. We fired a barefoot IC756 into it using a tuner to
work what you see in the 160 column. Managed to work some Eur as well as KH6.
Thanks to everyone for the Qs and we'll see you in the ARRL CW in a few months
(hopefully with more aluminum in the air and a tuned antenna for top band.
