Here in CO 400 miles would have been the best condx in years on 2m!
I wonder why I even operate the band anymore with the lack of activity.
I consider working 8 grids on 2m from western CO in this contest to be
just great! DM78 and DN70 are rare grids anymore and I might work 2 or
even 3 stations in DM79 if I'm lucky.
