QRP WAS, and found conditions quite poor. Could get as far east only as
WD5R and N0NI. Couldn't even make it with NO3M, who has great ears.

N03M and WD5R were among the handful of eastern stations I was able
to work early in the night.  I don't know what magic they had.
N0NI (normally a beacon station) was missing in action until the band got back in shape. The early conditions were so bad I actually was
afraid I would miss Iowa.  I filled out my multiplier list mainly from
10 PM until midnight local.  There were still a fair number of eastern
stations on at 3AM local, although I had already worked nearly all
of them.  Thank you night owls.
