Small "single-radio" domestic setup: 2elts steppIR at 12m, 40/80 homemade
bibander vertical, 756Pro2, small amp and N1MM (just perfect as usual !).
All together, 3 fiberglass elements for the 5 bands ! 

Was planning to do a bit more, especially on low bands, but when I
woke up around midnight local time the second night, it was heavily 
raining, which means, with my 380kV local power line, abt S7 white 
noise on 40, and S9+ on 80... So no alternative than going back to 
bed. I came back just before sunrise, when the rain had finaly 
stopped, but must say, with limited motivation.
Condx have been very bad, this stat says it all: Only 15% of NA-stations 
in the log (while the usual percentage in this contest fm my place used to be
around 35%). 
Did not hear much from NW-states/prov (with the exception of Jim 
W7EJ from OR) and wkd only 2 Californians on 20m. Nada from NA on 15m and not
even JA6GCE from what is usualy my best direction...
Fortunately a good EU activity allowed a few good runs at >100-rate 
with a good 30mn peak at 110 on 40m saturday morning. My home-made 40/80 
vertical(*) did a good job on 40m, where I worked more countries
than I did in 2005 in 40h of traffic, a dipole at 20m and a SO2R setup...
Just a bit of E's on 10m, but only to a few limited areas. Congrats 
to DL0TTY for being my only 5-bander !

See you soon from CN !
