The WX this year was fantastic! 85F both days, and sunny. Our new location near the open skate area was ideal. We had plenty of space to spread out and set up everything. Our new A3S went up quickly, and it worked well until 20 mins before the end of the contest. For some reason it became intermittent. Other than this minor problem, everything went smoothly. Thanks to the new UPSs that Jim K2ZL brought, we never had an outage even when filling the generator. The GOTA station was quite active, and Joe and Astrid made 58 QSOs. Astrid had fun working 75 SSB on Saturday night. We finished with 2200 QSOs, almost 1000 more than last year!

      We placed 11th overall in the 2A category
