Equipment Description: TS 950SD - 3 El. Tribander 
with about 100 watts. Worm Burner antenna just 33 feet high !

There's no meters like 10 meters !! but Conditions
are not quite there yet hi ! 
My Contest within a contest for the ARRL 10
  is  try to work all states CW.
Usually a challenging project even  for an all band
 contest weekend. Missed Rhode Island and Maine although
 I called a very weak ( with me)  KI1G for a while,
 never did hear a Maine station even in exchanges as I tuned
  in S & P Mode. 
 Not many DX mults heard  and worked all I found,
 Propagation was patchy from  here with the band
 closing early each night.
Next year -  better antenna - better conditions - GLWCDR
No JAs - No SE Asia yet-  Africa was almost non-existent
With minor flare just prior to test, Friday night things
sounded ominous - the  Aurora was visible from here
 so I  guess we were lucky to get what we did !! 
 3 Oceana were KH6- KH8 & ZL2 nothing
else made it this far in the CW portion. ZL2DX was in here 
all afternoon both days.
