Total Score = 5,212,982 Club: Soapbox: That was entertaining! I had
forgotten how much fun DX contests can
be when multiple bands are open at the
same time. Only a casual effort so
spent lots of time tuning around
looking for multipliers. Single radio
effort. I was either tuning or
running so fast there was no time to
listen on a second receiver. I never
expected rates like this. Personal
best hours ever from USA: 232,
221, 220. Best 60 minutes was 237.
Wish I had turned on the recording.
:( About 22z on Saturday, we had a
very wet snow storm come through.
Temperature was right about freezing
so everything stuck to the antennas.
In a 30 minute period I saw the SWR go
from 1:1 to 5:1 on all bands. I could
still work stations, but it was hard.
Nothing to do but wait for morning
when the sun would melt the snow.
That finally happened around 14z.
Antennas work much better with no
ice! Pet peeve. "Thanks for 04.
QRZ?" If you have time to say other
stuff, you have time to give your
@$^%#^% callsign! Worked on 6 bands:
