Never got Northeast of WPA and missed all the multiplier rich
New England secs. Short openings to the rest of the Eastern 
seaboard with really only a handful of stations worked. Called
many loud stations Southeast of me early in the evening with
no luck but could work very weaK Stations in other directions.
Second night I was hearing the lower 48 early before 0200z
but never could get anyone's attention until after 0600z and
trust me I tired. It wasn't till 1100z before I could really call
CQ with any results. After putting up with 20dB+ over static
crashes from storms in the Pacific during the WW CW I ran
a new beverage pointed at W1's. Running 500 feet of coax
down a steep hill I ended up flat on my face in the snow after
rolling for 30 feet. This had to be a good sign as I'm sure the 
antenna will work great. No W1/2 prop to try it however.
