Comments:

Several “firsts” for the W5WZ station and team for this contest.

First time for Ed, K5OF to join the W5WZ team, flying in from North Carolina.
It was good to have him on the team.

K5OF at Run1, and W5WZ at Run2

First time for Dallas, K1DW to guest op at W5WZ; he operated from his home in
Texas, by remote controlling one of the K3’s at W5WZ.

First DX contest since expanding the beverage receive antenna farm.

First contest since moving the 80-meter dipole from 77 to 105 feet.
First contest with the EA4TX interlock installed, allowing easy Run/S&P on a
single band.

Marsh KA5M also drove in from Shreveport (100 miles) on Sunday.

Special thanks to Sharon KW5MOM for the pot of gumbo and the pot of chili; Bobby
for the usual spread of deli meats and breads; Ed for pre-contest dinner on
Thursday night.

WM5H at Run1

As usual, too much food AND lots of fun!
