Well, that was a great contest.  The waterfall was Rockin !!   Had many moments where I looked at the waterfall, thought all the current stations were already worked,  But then some new one would drop in.

I had around 75 QSOs during the contest, mostly on 20, with a few on 40. This is some sort of recent history record, haven't see this much PSK activity in long while. My LONP count went to 249, lots of 0000s.

Thanks to everyone, Jerry was my first contact of the event.

Sorry I had to miss out on the bulk of the fun this weekend.   Even though I had to be out of town to attend family events I was able to make a few contacts despite the commitments and bad wifi.    I think next year family should consult my ham calendar before scheduling anything. Hi Hi.

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.
The scoring will actually pull the member number based on the callsign data in
the member listing, so it should be self-correcting.

Did some trouble shooting after removing 3 radios, a speaker, and several binders from top shelf so I could trace out cables.  Lot of work... that's the cabinet pictured on my QRZ page although it has changed some.

Anyhoo  after all that I finally traced it down to a defective keyboard 3 ft. extender cable for USB cable. Old one is in the garbage.  Did some Q's on 15m and all is now  good.  There is joy in Mudville !!!

Never saw you at all Barry. The chat is open to all members of groups. I find it faster than the group.io emails.

I keep hoping back and forth between 10 and 20.  Was trying to get John in FL a bit ago, was watching this QSO and about four others and they all went away in mid stream.  HI HI Hi the thrills of the bands.

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.
