High Bands SUCKED (15m only opened to EA Sunday)
JR3NZC was 53 on 15m but couldn't hear me (or K3LR or W3LPL)thru western USA
JH1EAQ was 51 without the big pile and heard me via Skew Path (West)

LOW Bands were FUN! (28 countries on 160 SSB without RX Antennas!)
Parasitic Reflectors on 80M GP and wire Vertical Heard and worked Very Well
Not as good as a 4 square or Beverages but definitely better than single vert,
especially on RX to NE and SE.

Tuner problem on high end of 40M so resorted to fallen corner fed Delta Loop
which has 500 KHz 2:1 SWR bandwidth.  I was AMAZED at how well it worked even
though it is a 1 dBi Antenna!

I notice that Single Op K4AB beat my Assisted Multiplier
Guess his 2L40 and high Beam were working well.  Congratulations Larry !

I spent a lot of Sunday doing other things...
