Antennas : 1/2 of the driven element from Cushcraft A3 tribander
used as a 10/15/20 ground plane + 160M INV-L for 160/80/40M

I've had mild flu bug since Friday so I wasn't feeling like a concentrated effort (my energy level has been sitting at -20dB), but I figured at a minimum I could fill in one of the empty slots on team #4 and make more than 0 points. Not sure how many hours I operated as I was alternating between working the radio, doing laundry, and staring off into space for long periods. My initial goals were to hand out some QSOs and make more than 0 points. This evolved into a goal of making more than 100 QSOs and 10K points which I was able to accomplish (yeah!!).

73, Mike W4EF.

Comments: First time to do a M/2 - and my partner in crime was Scott KA3DRR - great partner! Unfortunately only had one TX - so it was really more like a Multi-Single - but no such category in NAQP - but we still had fun. 10 was a great surprise - in fact I would never have thought we would end up with more Q's and mults on 10 than we had on 80! 80 was sure noisy and made it hard to get the mult's we were hoping for.

We kept coming back and finding 10 and 15 open - who needs stinkin' sunspots....just kidding!!! Didn't hear some of the VE's I expected - like VE4 and VE5 - also missed ND! Thanks for the Q's!

73's and enjoy. Dick

It was great having 10m and 15m open most of Saturday afternoon, I didn't expect that. However, I don't know how 80 and 160 sounded elsewhere, but they were the pits here. Thanks for the QSOs everyone.

Dana, K6NR

No 160 antenna and a poor antenna for 80. But it was a fun time as nothing broke for a change. :)

Comments:

Fantastic conditions. Ironic how the 2 contests this year with the best
propagation were the NAQP CW's. This is my personal best for a summer NAQP,
and just short of my personal best of 336Q's this January.

I really planned for bad conditions, and I really was expecting the worst.
When 10 and 15 were open, I got hooked! Decided not to put up my 10m ringo,
and used 15m dipole on 10.

Worked a couple of new states for WAS - ID for 15 and MI for 10

I think I might have stayed too long on 40, and spent more time on 80
hunting mults. 80m was like the Calif QSO Party! Lots of NCCC activity.
Fantastic turnout from VE3 land too.

Software: N3FJP NAQP Logger

Rig: FT-990

Ants:
80 meter sloping dipole at 50 feet
40 meter inverted vee at 50 feet
20 meter dipole at 20 feet facing NE
15 meter dipole at 25 feet (for 10m as well)
