Soapbox Comments:  I had a ball!! First time for me was last year and I did okay.  Don’t remember what the band condx were like back then (I slept since then) but condx were very good this year.  As stated earlier 40 started out pretty lousy but picked up.  20 was great and then later 40 and 80 were both good.  Sunday was pretty rough on 80 meters because of all the RTTY signals but still managed to pick quite a few out.  Thanks to everyone for all the fine contacts during the contest. I thoroughly enjoyed it.  I’m not a contester by any means (at least not seriously or for any competition), I just wanted to get as many as I could to bolster up my WTW, 070, LONP contacts.  I may have even slipped in a SD/ND contact toward that endorsement.

Made a lot of contacts on 80 and 40.  Some strange looking signals on the waterfall from time to time.  7.040 is usually good for a couple of DX stations but it was full of RTTY.  I would call CQ and sometimes would get someone send their call sign one time but often it was scrambled.  Me thinks you should send your call at least twice.  Also, I know what my call is, if you call me, send my call one time and send your call two or three times.  A lot of fun, wish the propagation had been better but the waterfall got a good workout.  I really enjoy the PODXS 070 Club!

One typical contest aspect that has been missing from our 070 contests is SOAPBOX.  So here's your chance.  Post your 2018 PSK Fest stories and experiences here.  Anything from "had fun" to "it was so cold the iguanas froze, fell out of the palm trees, and pulled down my homebrew 16 mile long receive-only beverage antenna."  Let's hear how it was for you!
