It was really great to see the 40m waterfall wall-to-wall on Friday night!  Been a long time since I saw participation like that.  And great participation on 20 and 40 on Saturday.  Special mention to Barry VA7GEM who was in there from the RF Black Hole in the PNW - great to work you again!  Many many thanks to all who played.  You guys and gals made my weekend.

I sure didn't win anything, but I did manage 5 new LONPs.  Good turnout by our newer members!  But no new grids for me and I missed Erin Go Bragh by only that pesky N.  Saw several, but couldn't work them.  All in all a fun event for me.  And many thanks to those working hard behind the scenes that make it possible for 070 to continue our contests, despite all the software and web challenges.

Hi Dave,

Yes not good propagation when we tried.  When I got back on 20 after lunch, there were several West coast stations on, but no East coast stations.  Lots of EU stations on FT8.  We will be in DE again in November around Thanksgiving, if we can travel by then, and I will be operating from Newark, DE with a 20mtr and 40mtr dipole.  This may give a better chance on 40.

Well folks
It looks like I will have to give this test a miss
as my old faithful HRD will no longer work.
In DM780 every time I hover over a rcvd callsign
it freezes. It will not recover. This has always
been an issue with a hesitation, but tonight it
is a lockup that is only fixed by a restart of DM780.
Hope you all have fun es GL

What a contest !   Definitely not a big score for me, but better than previous contests.
