about 60 phone calls from work, I was lucky to be able to participate.
Ten meters was in decent shape. Fair openings to EU on both days and
good condx to JA too. Biggest surprise was 9M6US calling while I was

areas was nice too.
Had to work a lot of stateside on scatter and no KH6 in the log!
Endless CQ's on Sunday with little answers but gave me a chance to
scan a few more certificates and plaques for the website. Check out:

band NA record if you was single band.
