    After 5 UHF contest trips to FN53 Maine, Neil, N1DGF, and I said this would be our last trip to FN53. Setting up 6 bands Field Day style was getting to be too much an effort for the very low QSO count. Little did either of us know it would be Neil's la... Read More

    This was a really good UHF contest.  One of the highlights, in California and perhaps elsewhere, was having so many women and families on the air on the higher bands.  There were at least four women out here who operated all the way up to 24 GHz during... Read More

    I had the four lower bands (222-1296) working properly, but conditions were dismal and participation was scant. I only managed to make 13 QSO's all day Saturday, and by the time I paused for a little overnight sleep, I had not succeeded in working any ... Read More
