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. We were fortunate to have a carfull of folks from the Lynchburg area
stop by after the Richmond Hamfest on Sunday to spend a little time operating.
We did pass some emergency traffic when K4ZW's wife couldn't get in touch with
Ken who was at W3LPL. Found Ken on 40 and asked him to call his wife regarding
a broken water pipe! 160 = OMNI VI/QRO Amp/sloping 1/4 wave vertical with 4 on
ground radials 80 = OMNI VI/Titan/dipole at 100ft 40 = Orion II/HB8877/2 el KLM
40 @ 80ft 20 = Orion II/ACOM 2000A/5/5/5/5@160ft 15 = OMNI VI/QRO Amp/5 el NR4M
@80ft 10 = Omni VI/Titan/KT36XA @ 70ft  The antennas on 10 and 40 were put in
place for the multiplier station and pressed into use to get max RF flowing as
construction continues. Let's hope things dry up so we can get some more
tower/aluminum in the air!
