I'm just too excited about this!

I made 16 contacts in the CA QSO Party with my AP-10A indoor vertical antenna running 100W (which I thought it's a garbage when using indoor!).

When I called 3 stations with no response, I was about to give up...THEN...the 9 stations were booming in and I was hooked to 15m band for an hour.

At the end I made a 10m contact from NY-CA, my first one ever!

73 from a happy man!

Hope you tried CW.  It was hot and even with very modest equipment, it's not too hard to make a bunch of contacts.
