Wonderful contest, wonderful weekend, wonderful condx for the most part.
Certainly one to remember. 15M wouldn't stop Fri night, early Sat morning. If
you single banded 20 with the thought of getting some sleep, it didn't work
that way or you didn't win! Saturday 10 was terrific starting out with Eur
skewed path then normalling up straight path. Second day not nearly as good
with a few weak skewed path Eurs. 20 was really open to Eur the entire contest.
160 was really rough with thunderstorms Friday night/Sat morning. Not much
better the second night. 80 wasn't quite as bad. The static crashes were taking
out bits and pieces even on 20, so it no doubt affected 40 as well. Everyone did
a good job coping with it and asking for lots of repeats!

I may have missed some of the guys on some of the bands, but this is pretty
much what I remember! Terrific effort by everyone even after the big runs
diminished to a trickle and s/p was necessary!
Hopefully this summer we'll get the rest of the second AB105 190 footer up to
support 80M quads and south antennas, add a second el to the 160M vertical, and
replace the bottom two OWAs in the 20M stack.
Thanks to the Bookouts for allowing us to invade their farm once again for the
