It’s been a great contest for me to add to my LONP numbers.  I think I had about 33 going into the contest.  I did a quick count yesterday of Friday’s numbers and I’ve doubled my count.  I’ve made lots of 0000 contacts and would expect more folks will join.  I did notice one station I worked on both 40 and 20 gave the wrong PODSX 70 number both times.  The number belongs to another member I’ve logged.  I’m not sure what to do about that.  Please advise.

Was on 28120 and Force 12 has SWR problems which crashed computer. Had to do a reboot . It's back n to normal now, but even tuner in radio doesn't help. May have to look at elements to see if they are all there. Probably will have bring it down off tower - UGH ! Climbing days are over for me and all my climbers retired.

Milt:

Think that last time I was on 10m was when I had old XP machine. Since replace with a WIN7, but probably needs a few snap on chokes here and there.    Probably better solution than dropping antenna from 40 ft.. 

Simple fixes usually work.  There's a remote switch on tower , but it never caused a problem.

Too tired to think about that stuff.  Fixing stuff may happen after I get some sleep...

Nothing on you Milt. I did catch a call sign in Eastern NC and then just heard/saw KD5ILA from AR but nothing good enough for a valid QSO.  Will just keep plugging away.

I noticed a lot of them and also some new LONP for me.  What I really noticed were all the 0000 numbers.
Should have a good jump in new members.
