    Just wondering if anyone else was crazy enough to do this. I jumped in on a whim when I turned on my Elecraft K1 while killing time when my wife was doing some shopping and I was waiting in the Tacoma and realized it was CW SS weekend...kept at it on a casual basis for about 8 hours total operating time on and off, exclusively on 40 meters. Ended up working 43 sections for 99 valid QSOs, not counting a few dupes, over 8K points. Next year want to jump in with both feet for a full 24 hours of operation and see if I can do a section sweep!

    Should add that all QSOs were made while parked. I'm not so crazy as to attempt to do the CW SS exchange and logging while driving!

    I've worked both a 10 meter and a SSTV contest while mobile-in-motion! Those were back in the days when I thought I was invincible. I know better now!
