Hard to beat heading up the snowy Catskill mountains to a contest station @
2100ASL and playing radio all weekend ;)

Snow snow snow that's all it seems to do here in Summit!

Not much of a SSB contester and I was hounded by WU2X to start a team so
figured 10 hours might be a good opportunity play in phone a bit. I have to
confess, CW is so much better! 

Bands were in ok condx, I expected much better signals to the west coast on
both 20 and 40, but condx seemed to be very good to west coast on 80. Only
worked 1 station on 10 on the west coast during the test and I think I made a
bad decision spending so much time on 20 and not starting on 15m. The bands
were exceptionally quiet here in the Catskills which really helped pulling the
weak mobile stations which seemed to be a fair number of. I thought the 100w
limit was successful in  "leveling playing field" which was interesting. Don't
get me wrong, having this station behind you helps ;)  

Truth be told, playing is SSB was a little enjoyable <cough> and maybe playing
in ARRL DX phone might be a possibility this year.

Thanks to Ray W2RE and Lori KB2HZI for inviting me up, feeding me and allowing
me play radio all weekend.

Thanks for NCJ for sponsoring the test.

73 cu in the next one,
