K8XXX IS THE OFFICAL MULTI MULTI HIGH POWER MIQP WINNER!
What more can I say? It was a great time and I am sure if we all pull together again next year it could only get better! Thanks for a great experience!

I built an antenna for 900MHz out of an old hockey stick and some brazing wire. It is a 10 element Quagi. Of course the feed line is Andrews 1/2" 50Ohm hard line for sake of loss. Radio is a converted Motorola GTX mobile. The Motorola Maxtrac 800 on top is converted to 900MHz receive for a repeater that I am in the progress of building. The commercial antenna is also for 900MHz that will be going up soon. I am in the progress of reprograming another Motorola GTX mobile for the van and doing the conversion to an 900MHz Motorla Maxtrac 30watt radio for amateur use.

I worked Tim W2VVV on the KQ2H 10 meter repeater on 01-09-2008 somewhere around 4:30pm EST or 2130 UTC. That was quite a surprise for me. I had the scanner on and could hear the repeaters on 10 iding so I jumped right in there for at least one contact before picking up my youngest from daycare. Keep your hopes up the bands are coming back!
