What a blast! K8ISK, W4XP and I operated from Reddish Knob, WV, elevation 4399
ft in FM08jl. We are all part of the K8GP group but this time it was a one bus
affair - not enought space for more - and from a mountain 2 hours closer than
Spruce Knob. After mediocre conditions last year, this year was fabulous. For
once all the HF tricks would have been useful - second radios, big separation
between separate antennas, multiple operators on each band. Excellent Es
conditions on 6 meters on Saturday. Decent Europeans the second hour of the
contest but their signal strength was such that I couldn't work large numbers. 
Wish I could have abandoned the SSB run freq and run on cw. A strong aurora
Saturday evening about 2300Z - but better further north. Massive tropo opening
on 2 meters starting about 0300Z Sunday. We were on the eastern edge of the duct
and worked as far as EN10, 12 and EM08 , 09 to the west.
