Only put in about 1/4 the time. Ran assisted to take advantage of spotting
since I wasn’t going to be competitive anyway. Low wires and no power really
can’t compete with directional stacks and high power on SSB. Don’t get me
wrong – I had fun, especially on 15m. 10m opened a bit on Sunday to South
America [and perhaps elsewhere for the big stations]. It was a fleeting few
hours during the afternoon when I saw 10m perk up, and I stuck around and
worked all I could.

I definitely need a tribander for next year — too much fun on 20-10m.

Looking forward to CW next month. Thanks to all who gave me Qs.
