New (claimed) USA M/M Record

We started this contest out with the station in better shape than it has ever been in.
Much of the thanks for this goes out to Bill Myers (K1GQ), who has worked tirelessly on improving antennas, antenna switching and station optimization at KC1XX for the last 10 years. Bill was unable to operate with us this weekend but we know he was there in spirit.

Also MUCH thanks to Matt's wife Christine and their girls who kept us fed all weekend.
We are very fortunate that they tolerate this crazy hobby and are so good to us.

Super job by the W3LPL and K3LR teams - we all continue to compete at the highest levels
of multi-op contesting and hope to do so for many years to come!

What a crazy weekend! When 80m started off with 5 straight hours of 140/hr rates we knew something was up.
These have to be among the best overall conditions we've seen in a very long time, certainly from a low frequency perspective.

- Breaking 2,000 QSOs on 80m CW, strong work by W1FV and crew. This has never been done by a USA M/M.
- Possibly new 40m single band CQWW CW record by a USA M/M
- Simply great LF propagation, quiet conditions
- Almost making 6-band DXCC in one weekend (missed by 2 countries on 160m)
- Strong teamwork by the whole team, great mult passing
- New team members: K1FWE (also joined for CQWW SSB), N9NC
- Having W2RQ return for 20m, always great fun!
- Cool longpath propagation (tnx HS0AC for final zone on 40m Sunday morning)
- Hearing XU7ACY,HS0AC on 80m Sunday afternoon but tough EU wall, too hard to break
- Working 3W1M on 15m LP Sunday morning, 9M2IDJ on 10m LP, wow!
- Overall, the amazing worldwide participation in this contest,
especially from Europe - pileup depth continues to amaze

Thanks to all the DX stations who continue to support this contest and get on the air.
And to those who traveled this past weekend to activate so many countries. It is all of you who help make this so much fun!

Dave KM3T (for the KC1XX Team)

STRONG work guys! It's been awhile, but I hope to rejoin the team as an active member next year.
