Seemed to be a very big turnout this time, lots of QRM, lots of CXers !!!I'm sure alll had a super time- 61 is good for me as I never was proficient in working contests. I do not work 'contests' except Field Days years ago, and in 1976 the 1976 Bicentennial WAS Award (was #26 in that one), and the CX. For me the 1976 award was the only REAL contest I ever worked. Therefore I do not have the knack, computer stuff, contest skills, or interest to work a 'real contest.' This Fall I will have been on the Ham Bands 50 years. Congratulations! Jim W8KGI and I have also enjoyed 50+ years. Mac I just do not get on the air enough anymore, so I had a great time with this "CW" CX. I get real 'kick' using the old stuff on the air with CW. Sorry I missed Mac and Marty. I only had a limited amount of time Sun for the 'AM' CX. I only had around 21 contacts. Had a terrible time with QRM with the WWII receivers. It was fun but the CW CX is always the best time of the two CX's (my opinion). CX is always fun.
