wasn’t sure I was even going to
participate in this one, as I had
never operated on 160m. But after a
stellar performance by the Admiral the
week before in ARRL CW, which was
certainly motivational, I decided to
give it a try. I got a late start due
to a blinding snow storm and had to
walk 1/2 mile, as my car couldn’t
make it up the hill to get to the
WW1WW shack .The station worked
flawlessly. Woody’s last minute
installation of a beverage for the
northeast, lying on top of 3ft of snow
really paid off as I worked EU’s at
the top of the band 1.960 one after
the other for quite some time. The
WW1WW station is at a very noise free
location and was easy to pull out the
weak ones. I am very thankful and
appreciative to Woody to have the
chance to operate. Thanks to all the
stations I worked, see you all in the
next one! 73 Fred KK1KW Station:
