Florida was again blessed with good openings to EU, Northeast Midwest and West
coast on SSB and FT8. I also managed to get the 2 meter radio working on
MSK1444. Most excited to work into northern Canada.. DO20, DO42 and DO61 My Only
wish was to work into Alaska for number 50 WAS on 6 meters, only to find I
missed the KL7 opening . The later part of the contest Sunday was exciting to
run the west coast prior to an intense storm coming from the west. Upon storm
arrival, winds reached 52 MPH when overhead and 6 became dead to all signals.
This lasted to just 15 minutes prior to contest end. To my surprise, an intense
opening to Europe began when the storm moved East of my QTH with only 10 minutes
left in the contest. I suggest in 2019 the contest should end not at 2100Z but
0300Z the following day. For FT8, I can say it’s a great way to increase
multipliers, but I only wish we can all choose which mode to use…. We should
use “NA Contest Mode” at all times except for DX Contacts. Hopefully WSJT-x
can automatically switch modes in the future.
