This weekend is the California QSO Party, and I'm planning an as-I-can effort. Weekend plans keep changing, what with soccer games, birthday parties, and more soccer games for the kids, but I'm hoping to do 8 hours operating in this event.
Tonight, I got N1MM set up for CW, and got my Heil BM-10 out of storage and hooked up (that tells you how much I operate phone...). I think I'm pretty good to go, and excited about the contest.
Hope to see you in the CQP. I doubt Santa Clara County will be that rare (you can hardly throw a stone without hitting a ham here), but I hope I can provide it on a unique band/mode for you.
