Total Score = 2,540,876 Club: Soapbox: A new personal best! Conditions
were amazing. A great discussion on
the club's e-mail reflector convinced
me I should try running on 10m from my
small station. I tried. After about
a dozen calls I was about to give up
when the flood gates opened. By the
time the onslaught slowed I had over
600,000 points. A second run took me
over 1 million just 20 hours into the
contest. Normally I do not see that
until around 36 hours. Two more runs
brought the score to about 2 million.
Search and Pounce (my normal method)
brought me the rest of the way.
Being called by a VU2 during one of
my runs (and as loud as the
EUs): priceless! Breaking pileups
with one call: priceless! Having beam
stuck to the south for the last two
hours: not so good. Fortunately that
will be a relatively easy fix. I now
wish I had put up the 160m antenna.
It probably would have added another
100K to the score.
