Rough conditions on all bands from B.C. interior this weekend. Little on 15M,
and 20M was very noisy with modest action heard. EU opening seemed to last maybe
an hour with marginal signals -- just two UK sections in the log. ZS6BBK was
very strong here, for a nice surprise call in the early afternoon.

Lots of U.S. stations that were not in the SCP file, which was great to see.
Overall, hourly rates were very low... this wouldn't be much fun for a
first-time RTTY contester.

Worked hard to get relatively few Qs on the low bands, which were very noisy
(S7-S8 noise) as well. Thought after NAQP SSB ended there'd be more RTTY signals
on 80M. There were a few more. Stuck with it till late Saturday evening when no
signals could be heard. Score is up from 7,500 last year.
