Well, by no means a stellar performance, but this is much better than our efforts last year, even with our share of Murphy's wrath! We knew we were in for some trouble because the weather was perfect and the antennas went up *way* too easy. We had logging software ( and network issues ) again this year. This cost us a full hour, plus several 10+ minute long downtimes during the first 3 hours. One downtime happened due to the CW interface locking up the computer that had the main log database on it. So, next year we will absolute make sure that the logging software and cw interface are operational the night before the MiQP and that the log database is on a dedicated computer NOT used for anything else. Otherwise, we had a great time. Only worked *one* mobile. Just never heard them. The bands sure were finicky this year. Our only DX was on 40m when we worked CU2JT on CW.
