Considering PSK has been almost non-existent most of the weekend, it was nice to be able to make contacts. I got several of the bonus stations on both 20m and 40m. 

I worked a few stations on 10 m. I guess there was also a 10-10 Open Season event going on, so I spotted some signals there. Too bad N9AVY's station went into a coma this weekend; he could have work both events as he  is also a prominent member of 10-10 as well as 070.

We got several new members this weekend. 

Even though the bands were quite challenging at time, it was a FB time for those who were able to get on the air for even a portion of the three days. I look forward to next year.

As I am sitting here trying to get the last couple of contacts I had some thoughts about the weekend. Despite the conditions it was fun. To make some contacts you had to work at it. One had to check prop, watch bands come in and out, hop around some, which in my mind was very entertaining and challenging. I certainly didnt see any DX burning through, but there was and is activity. So when everyone says the bands are dead....they are dead because no one is working them. I saw some very interesting propagation, and yes there were times where the bottom would fall out of band, but it popped right up, One just has to be persistent.

I never saw the two UK bonus stations, so I hope you chaps over there didnt have to talk only to yourselves, hi! Would been nice to see some DX\

Finally I think we stirred some interest. I made a couple of non contest QSO's where the operator wanted to know about the club and the contest. So, my thoughts....thanks to the PODX gang for keeping this running and making the contests.

Looks like I'm out of TDW for the count.
 
Hooked up FT-1000 MP which just came back from Burghardt in South Dakota and nothing works.  Not one button on the radio... can't change bands, modes, filters, etc.  Plus 14070 has bars every KHz all across the waterfall !  Tried the manual for programming and nothing there worked.
 
Spent quite a few bucks getting it repaired.  They will get an email on Monday expressing my displeasure.
 
Can't go back to TS-680S because few can hear me a that because I'm transmitting off frequency.
 
I'm done for this contest.

Don't feel too bad Jerry... it's going around.

I took Friday off to take care of some projects that were piling up, one of which was programming a spare link radio for my repeater.  Found out right away that my trust bench power supply was only putting out 2.5 VDC; got that swapped out and then one of my service monitors would not power on.  Spent the day building the ESR meter that had been sitting on my bench since Christmas so I could troubleshoot.  The Astron went in the trash and the service monitor is now awaiting parts.  That Astron was hit by lightning a few years ago and never has been quite right since.  

Hopefully Burghardt will pull a rabbit out of their hat for you on Monday.

Yep the LONP portion of the Endorsement Checker is not working right now. That also affects the WABOL endorsement.

David is aware and will work on it as he can, as his ridiculously busy schedule allows.  It'll get fixed at some point.

Still a few hours left in the TDW contest!
