|Map of contacts - most were on 40 meters (PR was on 15 meters, only 15 meter contact) - map by http://www.qsomap.org/|
I ended up making 24 contacts, 16 states/provinces (including Puerto Rico and France) for a total score of 774 points - all QRP at 5 watts with the KX3 and my 20/40 dipole that lays on my shingles on the roof.
I used the SKCC Logger program, and it made life really easy!
I dug out an old J-37 key that my father had, and it was a real pleasure to use!

I will definitely be back next month! This was really fun, and if you're worried about your CW skills, this is the perfect event for you. Nice and slow - not the break-neck speed of most CW contests!
