Total Score = 3,970,715 Club: Soapbox: Great contest, my own personal
record was broken. And with less time
in the test too! Good rates on
10-15-20, 10 m was open just like in
the old days of cycle 22! 80 m
dipole had a contact problem (relay)
that did not get fixed with 100 w,
only when exposed to an accidental KW,
did it work again. Also, noticed that
now there are too many relays in
general, a relay PSU run out of amps
and relays don’t pull after the PSU
heats up! Work to be done. Second
radio was a brand new IC-7410, it sure
hears and works better than an old
756PRO! SO2R with WINTEST and
DX-doubler Home brew antenna switching
and logic. TX coax stubs + ICE band
pass filters IC 756 PRO III, IC 7410
(new in this contest) Homebrew
amplifiers 10-15-20: 4 stack of
Hygain tribanders (TH6+TH7) on a 45 m
tower 4 stack of 10 ele tribanders on

45 and 50 m towers 80: Rotatable
