QTH, both modes. Then I went to Aruba to operate on the P40L team, multi-single in CQWW CW. It looks like we won. My 25% of the score will be credited to MLDXCC, hopefully over 4M. I operated a few hours in the ARRL 160 from Truckee and had a blast learning more about this mysterious and difficult band on which I'm quite the novice. My best receiving antenna was a Mag 240N!
Now I'm tired of accumulating ham shack pallor and intend to spend some quality time in the Sierra sunshine, sliding down mountains on a pair of hi-tech barrel staves! 73,Rick N6XI

The big news this month was that Santa made an early stop at the W6SR QTH. The present was in the form of an 80M QSL card. Not just any 80M QSL card, this one was from C91CW in Z-37, confirming my 06 August 2005 contact. This is important to me since it was my 200th, and last zone, I need to complete my 5BWAZ. It has been 27 years in the making. Whew! Thanks again Santa!
Other stuff going on this month was that I made a 3 day trip to LA to join my ex office-mate at this retirement party. He had been with the company for 41 years! Our kids were up for a few days, to go to my brother’s wedding, I was best man (again) this makes my second time for him (and his 3rd), I told him this was it, and not to ask me again, HI HI
Radio?? Yeah a bit, but not very much. Since company, travel, and the wedding was during two contest weekends it just didn’t leave much time for operating at all. And, I had a cold for most of last week. I did get abt. 3 ½ hrs to play in the 10M contest and worked 334 QSO’s and 54 odd mults, SSB, HI Power.
Last but not least, Karen and I want to extend our sincere wishes to all for a very Merry Christmas, a prosperous and peaceful 2006. And my God smile upon all of us in the New Year. C U all the 17th de Rick W6SR
