VA3ECSO LP ALLFinally broke 1K Q's in a contest. Running non-assisted is a challenge when the big guns only throw out there call ever month or so. 18 months of Morse Runner, 10 minutes a day gave me the ability to finally run on this contest successfully, special thanks to Alex, VE3NEA for his software. It is incredible!! Harry VA3EC

VE3FDTSO LP ALLMurphy's strike came early: a couple of hours into the contest I lost my trusty DX-LB+ shortened dipole. I started hearing severe on-and-off random "white noise" bursts and signal attenuation, and discovered corresponding incredibly high VSWR kicking in stochastically. Operating on 40 m and down became "challenging". Less low bands meant more sleep. Other than that it was "business as usual": Metric tons of "big guns" running and not signing their calls for eternity. (Relying on spots, I suppose, and leaving out the unassisted guys totally). "Power plant bullies" trying to push me out of my CQ frequency. (I survived a 2 hours run on 20 m with 5 long lasting deafening "tenants" moving in to my humble abode.) My nasty incurable habit of wasting too much time on "juicy" multipliers with no return on investment. (That some of them actually hear me is what fuels the underlying illusion of being able to break through the pile-ups.) "Another day at the office." Looking forward to the next year. Oh, I almost forgot: great conditions!
