Thanks to everyone that participated; it was fun.

I was using my Elecraft K3 with the multiband dipole at 40'. I occasionally flipped on the amp to put out between 800 - 1000 watts when I wanted to steal a contact from Mark, or just see if I could get the band stirred up.

Now we know who got da big box....

Also I had got 455 stirrred up a bit on sunday... Dont know if you heared it or not? Got interesting to work a "little pile up" from the other end.. Some got fustrated because I would rag chew a bit with each but so be it.. Not exactly a ARRL contest but one to have fun with, And that it was... Got a few new people to sign up for the forums and that was great....

Contest was good, nice to see some new hams in the winner circles, i didn't really "participate" i turned the radio on and made two contacts, met two members on the air, and was great. Diagnosed a mike gain problem and then listened to .455 for the next day off and on. next time around id like 6 to open up, so i can test out my kw on 6 on a nice size yagi.

great fun, and much better than any other contest ive heard on the air if you ask me.

first ten meter fun ive had in quite some time, and two contacts into cali aint too shabby.
