All I can say is that it was better than last year.

Friday night was a good start with 94 qso's before the band went dead.
Saturday was good with 464 q's and Sunday was terrible with only 110
q's.  I stuck with tuning and then finally it opened up to Europe for a
total of two qso's.  But it was still neat to finally hear Europe on 10
meters from this neck of the woods, and boy were they loud.

The highlight of Sunday was working VY1JA, thanks for YT Jay.

I was running a C4XL at 75' and a C3 at 45'.  They were phased using
WX0B's stackmatch box.   It worked well.  The C3 is fixed NE and the
C4XL is ratable.  Rig is a FT1000mp and the amp is an old reliable Amp
Supply LK-500ZC.

Sure liked using my new callsign for ssb.

That's it from here.  See you all in January's contests, CQWW160 and
