W5KFT ops: K5PI, N1XS, W5TA

"80 meters was as good to Europe as I've ever heard it the first evening, but thunderstorms in the area limited things later in the evening and finally forced a station shut down at 0900 UTC. QRN was still very bad when I resumed at 1200 UTC, so I went to the high bands as soon as they opened. I still have lots of work to do on antennas - I hope to at least have that 40 meter beam up by the ARRL International DX Contest, CW." - N5AW

"Ninety-eight percent of my operation was search and pounce and chasing packet spots. I think I only called CQ briefly on three occasions when I was getting really bored. But, usually a needed multiplier would appear on packet and I would cut the CQing short to run off to chase the multiplier in a big pileup. It is interesting that as I grow older, the time goes by faster and the contests seem shorter. Time seems to compress now for me and the contests seem to be over soon after they have started." - K5NA

"I lost AC power some two hours before the end of contest, so I missed my favorite part. I enjoyed making many new contacts and I especially enjoyed the way the N1MM Logging program made things so easy to do so." - AD5VJ

"Terrible rain static on Saturday morning messed things up, but the Sunday morning long pathe opening made up for it! That is some cool stuff for sure!" - K5NZ

"We started with one Ameritron AL-1500 and one of my Yaesu FL-2100 amplifiers that would only do about 300 watts output. In the wee hours of Saturday morning, we heard a loud POP! and the AL-1500 blew both fuses. We tried some troubleshooting, but it was clearly out of the game. 80 meters was awesome for us. We worked most of our 80M meter multipliers with 300 watts." - K5PI (@ W5KFT)

"I managed to get in a few hours operating Sunday morning before work and got a better idea of how my new beam is working." - NA4M

"We had a family reunion here over the Thanksgiving week through Saturday, and a memorial service for a friend Sunday all afternoon pretty well shut off all hopes of any participation other then a brief time Saturday night and again on Sunday morning." - N3BB

"Very little time available this weekend, so very few QSOs logged." - W5GAI
