The new 28 element antenna site worked great under what seemed poor conditions. 
 The band was not stable with S9 to east coast one minute and S5 on the same 
station a few minutes later. The 8 element broadside/endfire array at 70 
degrees was used for 90 percent of the contacts.  The 8 element array toward JA 
helped to work 5 JA's.  There is no commercial power at the site which helped 
with the noise level and battery power was used to power the site.  The rig was 
a Ten-Tec Omni 6+ with a bird wattmeter to keep power below 5 watts.  Great 
contest but it would be nice to see more stations participating.  73 to All, Al
