Lloyd KH6LC. And thanks to dear friend
Al F5VHJ for the use of his NH7A
callsign. Nice to see 10 alive again.
At the age of 72, I am contemplating
this to be my final sunspot max, with
the not-so-nice notion that SFI's
would be stuck in the mid-70's for the
duration. Best hour was the first,
300 QSO. An exciting time on 10 on
Sunday: me wondering why I had such a
BIG state-side pileup. Turns out
someone spotted me as NH9, Wake
Island. Ah, the WWOP (wunnerful world
of packet)..... Last year I found a
great location on Ascension Island for
Marko, ZD8O (N5ZO), but do you think
he would find me and work me? Nope.
Only Zone 36 for the entire contest
was when a D2 in Angola called me on
15 on Sunday. Low bands were tough,
especially Saturday night, and the
elderly side of me said: "good time to
take a nap". One always can hope
they're still competitive, but I fear
my many CQ WW of 48-straight are in my
rear view mirror. But, promising to
find a place for CQ WW SSB next
year. Thanks to all who worked me,
and to all who made this such a good
weekend for contesting. Jim, N6TJ
