NS Ladder (3 September 2010)

Definitely unprepared this week and the score has gone down appropriately.  I’ve been slowly working to combat RF gremlins in the station.  80 and 40 are now 100% clean for SO2R, but I still have problems on 20 and 40 (both ways).  I think the 20-meter feedline is picking up (radiating) garbage.  I had a number of SO2R QLF moments.  The QRN was pretty nasty here (probably on account of the approach of Hurricane Earl) and I had to work hard to concentrate on the main radio.  I ended up just going to one radio after I went for three minutes without a QSO.

For next week’s NS and the NA Sprint, I plan to be QRV from a different QTH.  More on this when it happens.
