One thing is for certain, this was NOT a great HF contesting weekend. We had
hoped to have some increased upper band activity, but that was not to be. Only
20 and 40 Meter SSB had any significant amount of active stations. Propagation
on the active bands was not long so DX mults were way down from last year.
Thanks to very active mobiles and a dedicated 40 M station to track them, we
were able to work 29 of the 33 NM counties. We missed Sierra, Lincoln,
Valencia and De Baca.
We managed to work all states with the exception of VT and AK. VE mults
numbered 7 out of the 13 available. The usual Maritime and northern Provinces
were not heard at this location.
Shuffling of operators and stations had to be done due to the lack of upper
band propagation. We were joined this year by Jim, W7AZY and Marie, K7SKS, a
husband and wife team. Although we weren't able to provide them with high
volume runs, we certainly enjoyed their dedication to digging out the sparse
offerings. Hopefully they will be with us next year.
Thanks to Larry, N5BG, for hosting the Virden Contest Club operation at his
fine station. Thanks to all the stations who called and were logged.
73, and CU all next year for the NMQP. Milt, N5IA
