Many moons ago my in-laws lived outside of Dade City in an RV park called Traveler's Rest.  Was able to watch one of the launches from there when it was high enough.  Very exciting.

In 10-10 contests we had a large sheet of paper/cardboard with it broken down by the numbers groups. ... 0000 to 1000, 1001 to 2000, 2001 to 3000 and so on up the the last numbers issued. It was our "dupe sheet" ! What a pain to wield that along with paper logs and a Callbook... that was B.C. (Before Computers) and then many moved on to C64's and the like.... Dark Ages , man !!!

Troubles

The !@@#$^*)__)*&^%$# mouse conked out right in the middle of working stations on 15m . Had to scramble to find one that worked. Finally found one and even though it's a new one it seems to have intermittent problems ... had to reload it a few times. Dang Murphy's Law !!!

Maybe you could get a State Dept. job in Ukraine or one with oil companies ?

Hello good afternoon:
I am trying to make a contact for the contest all day long, and I have not been able to make any contact, because no one comes out for the contest, for normal reason but for a contest in any band. I will continue trying, I am disabled and I have all the time in the world. Sincerely, Eliseu Casas EA3HKA. Regards.

TDW this morning.

 

Had a decent run on 40m last night.
Steve, how cool was that?
Started this morning on 20m.
Barry, you're strong, clean and in the clear. I watched you move around on 20m. Good game plan.
I'm on 15m right now. Wkd KG6MZS all the way across town!
<AUTOCQ> is running but no joy. 
Going back to 20m at 2000z
