Three-Day Weekend Comes to an End

First, I want to thank EVERYONE who contacted me, or entertained my contact, during this contest. The PODXS 070 Club hosted a Three-Day Weekend PSK31 contest over the weekend, and we've (the OM and I) had a wonderful time.

*Well, I have to be honest in saying it was a little long for me. I have a hard time sitting through a two hour movie, much less a three day contest*

I ended up with 166 qualifying contacts, 106 member numbers, and 1000 bonus points. *woot* Seeing how it is late, and I'm exhausted, if you're interested in my final point count, then you'll have a nice little math problem to entertain yourself with. :)

Overall, I was happy with the contest. I was afraid that the CQ CW contest was going to interfere, but it wasn't too much of a problem. I think we both did well with the bands we have and the conditions we were blessed with. Unfortunately, 10m and 6m never opened for me, so I made no contacts there. And we don't have 160m here, so I was left to work 80m, 40m, 20m, and 15m only (which is pretty decent I must add!).

I guess the next PODXS 070 contest is in July. I don't know if I'll be making that one or not, being 4th of July and all --- but anything's possible.

Again... Thanks to everyone and Good Luck to all who worked the contest.

BTW -- if I contacted you, you should be confirmed via LoTW and eQSL. :)
