I just shut down from the BB event even thought there's 10 minutes left...
I could only work 20 mtrs here as constant checking of 40, 15, & 10 mtrs
revealed no signals...

....but I did manage to work 16 stations on 20 mtrs, most of them BBs...a
lot of QSB and sometimes one had to act quickly or the signal was gone...I
worked Jim, AL7FS, from Alaska and he had a great signal into here...

....I was able to work some vy weak signals by going to the filter 4
position on my K2 (100cps) so that was handy...I ran a lot with the 400
cps filter #3...still have to try Spectrogram again...

....my new Yaesu YH-77 headset works well and is very comfortable...

....may thanks to the sponsors....I enjoyed it...now back to some house
painting...
