After waking up early for a 1.5 hour swim workout, I drove 180km to the other
side of the island, arriving at KH6LC just in time to assist with the cement
pour for a new, 4th tower. I wanted to make sure that I was tired enough to
be able to sleep for 6 hours prior to the start (02:00 local) of the contest.
No problem having an endless stream of stations calling, even with 150 watts.
The low bands were very noisy the first night, but had quieted down
considerably by the next evening.
"Old school" here... Not running SO2R. I have no station of my own, therefore
I'm not able to practice. I'd still like to try it some time.
It's been 35 years since I had operated IARU single-op. I enjoyed the 24-hour
