Hot and big pileups!

Having fun and the pileups huge, good run on 40 last night with 1050 qso's. Had to take down the Battlecreek clone this morning, 160m loading wire tangled with 80m loading wire. Yesterday the 160m loading wire dropped after the insulator arced during a storm. Hopefully it will remain working from now on. Antennas are:
Battlecreek clone on a 18m Spiderpole, 160 - 80 - 40
Quarter wave vertical, 30 - 20 - 17
Vertical dipole, 15 - 12 - 10
All on the the sea shore.

Still single station, this is still giving us more than enough operating time,
CU in the pileups 73
