|"Elementary, my good man!"|
I'm really not much of a contester but this was the best time I've ever had in a contest and the hours went by like minutes. Two reasons for that: excellent low-band conditions and a new antenna configuration.
And I had not planned to participate at all. Friday night, when the contest began, was dinner with the little lady followed later by an episode of Sherlock Holmes - the old series, with Jeremy Brett - the only actor portraying that character worth watching. Saturday morning was a motorcycle ride. The contest was not even a remote consideration.
