So…off to bed to get a good nights sleep before the contest tomorrow night.
Here’s what we did today:
- Set up the laptops
- Set up the radios and interface devices
- Set up the amplifiers
- Modified the 80-meter dipole for CW off from SSB
- Tested the set up on 15, 17, 20, 30, 40, and 80 meters. Working fine.
Most frustrating thing for the day:
Calling CQ on 80 meters for a half hour on both RTTY and CW and only working 4 stations on CW (EU and NA).
A good day. We’re ready to go. We’ll be on the air in the morning as well. The rest of our group arrived today and they are a little tired. Sleep is a good thing.
73 until tomorrow…
