I Love this contest! Every BB QSO I make, its great
thinkin' about where they're at and wondering if
they've got bugs crawling on em' too! I love seeing
how big an antenna I can carry on my back for a mile
or so!! I love pickin' out just the right spot and
hiking out there! When I'm sittin' on top of the hill
and its 100 deg and the contest is almost over, I love
thinkin' about that cold beer in my cooler when I get
back to the pickup!

Condx didn't seem great but I had a great time... used
a dipole up 30' and a 20 meter vert with the base
about 10'. I was on a small peak with a clear view to
the horizon in all but one small (25 degrees?)
direction. Lotsa 20 meter qsos... 2 15 meter qsos...
half dozen 40 meter qsos. HOtter then heck till 2PM
when the clouds rolled over and I started worrying
about lightning. Made it the whole 4 hours though.

Really great when you can recognize half the calls you
work... either from this list or from previous

73 Guys, Time to start figuring out the log.
