Thanks to Cushcraft for help with CY9RF antennas!

Our fantastic Boat Captain, Mr. Robert MacLellan

After hauling the 1000 LB’s or so of gear up these rocks....

We got on the air a little after 0000 GMT May 28th.
We operated mostly 20, 17 and 15 Meters before the contest
We entered the WPX CW Contest as a Multi-Single and made 4840 QSO's

Doug K4LT and I K8RF would like to let it be known we could not have
done it with out everyone behind the scenes:
Noel W9EFL, Tom W8TK, Steve N8LGP, Geoff W0CG,
Bob W6RGG, Mac W6BSY, Hank K8DD, Stan AC8W, George K5KG, Dennis K7BV
CUSHCRAFT,  GDXF and others..
We were lucky to have excellent propagation.
The European and JA pile-ups, especially on 15 Meters, had to be heard to be believed!

Some times.... the pile-ups make you a little "Crabby"
One of the Op's at CY9RF....!
