I have a pair of 10GHz ARR Gunplexer based FM transceivers with tripods and batteries. If anyone wants to play around with them on Sunday and try for a couple extra multipliers, let me know. I have only tested at very close range, so not sure what these things can do.

This contest exceeded all of my goals for both contacts and multipliers, even with all of the rain changing my plans on Sunday. Some highlights include the duct into FM19 that had S9 signals up to 432 from FN13, working into FN42, my first 2304 contact, and the 6m opening Sunday evening that helped with many new grids. It was a nice dinner in Leroy and a huge burst of activity with the local FM stations and rovers after dinner. Thanks to K2QO for setting up dinner and to W2EV for helping to coordinate contacts with his family up through the 900MHz band. Despite a decent CW attempt with K2OS, I missed my home grid (FN13) on 1296. Always something to improve upon...

Thanks to all who participated. Roving is a lot of work and only worth it when there are others on the air.
