Obviously pete is the canadian champion......try as I might I was only
able to HEAR 9 staions on 10 thru 160. I worked everybody I heard. Oddly
enough, I doubt being QRO would have helped. What was really strange was
that several stations including HP1AC were quite strong......by the way,
my antenna was connected! (tribander at 66 feet, shunt loaded tower)
Finally, I worked more qrp stations in two hours on friday night than I
did for the entire contest..........9 qs, 9 spc.....canadian runner up?
