I usually spot and pounce for contests, but decided to try running this time. My ear is not as sharp as I thought it was! Thank you to all the patient ops for repeating your calls for me. The day seemed to start slow, but picked up after the early football games were over. I thought 15m was going to be the band of the day, but that didn't seem to work out. Thank you to 20m & 40m for supporting my signal. I didn't hit my score goal, but did pick up 3 of the 5 states missing from my CW WAS. I am very happy with that result. Just wish I had been able to pick up a few more mults, especially VE, XE, and a DX. Again, thanks to all the rookies and non-rookies for joining in on this fun contest!
