Hope you worked the genuine article.  At one point there were two pirates zero-beat with him running stations.  Check the online log.  Good luck.

Hope it was the real one on 80 CW. They were going up at a set step and finally snagged them halfway up the spread. Strong signal, both 40 and 80M in NTx.

Congrats Gene! Still s9 +10 here. I haven't started on them yet.. they're working eu now. If these signal levels remain, I don't think it will take too long to get them in the log.

No chance for me. I had folks over for the Superb Owl and was only able to sneak away during half time and a little later. By then the pile was just too big. By the time I got the snowblower ready for tomorrow the 80m station was QRT and the 40m guys were EU-only. And of course Evil Little Bill won. Today can just end. They've just upped the forecast to a half-inch of ice all day tomorrow, so the antenna will go down as soon as the changeover starts, which means if I don't pop them overnight I won't stand a chance until at least Wednesday, when accumulated ice melts -- assuming I still have antennas and a tower, that is.

If you are still awake, the EU-only period has ended and they are now taking all callers on 40m CW. I'm hearing them work people right around 7.032.

Congratulations Gene and Henry!

W2IRT- I'm sure you'll be ok with the ice storm.  My Force 12 Delta 240 survived a wind storm that clocked in at 106mph.  I can't imagine half inch of ice does more damage than 106mph winds.  You are in good hands with Force 12!

GL to all!

I got him at just as they finished working EU and took a little break. When he resumed, he was taking all takers EU, NA, SA including me!

Outstanding operator at 7.023!

I sure hope so. I'm more worried about the tower, its cables, and my lowband wire antennas than I am the Force-12 aluminum itself. A half-inch of solid ice, 40-50MPH winds then temps falling to near zero are worrisome. The 11pm forecasts say we may get a mid-day period of straight rain, which would be a tremendous relief, and that's what I'm hoping for. If the tower is iced up, even if the freezing rain is finished, the high winds and low temps would force me to keep it down. And the only way I can lower the array fully is to point everything at 355°, so a 50' height reduction and 20dB loss off the back of the antennas. Yeah, no thanks!

I did just work W2GD operating K1N on 40m CW, so the pressure's off and ATNO#322 is in the log. Macallan 18 to cap the night! Hoping for SSB and RTTY soon, then 80 and 160. The rest can wait.

Yeah, John, W2GD is one of the best operators I've ever known. President of the Frankford Radio Club (my contest club), regular WRTC participant, iron-ham in a major way, first-class tower installer and regularly operates P44W single-op during the major contests. They don't get much better than John.

That was too easy. Once it is confirmed on-line I am done.
I think my QSO was 3 minutes after PSE.

No more than 10 minutes with 400w and a dipole. I think it is all timing.

I'll trade you Chinook winds for ice on any day Smiley

Either your antenna or your house is too big...or both Cheesy
