Thanks to everyone who stopped to give me some Qs. My dreams of getting the US
record for hilltopper were absolutely SMASHED by below average conditions and
not enough stations on the air. There was no workable eSkip on 6M despite my
hearing VO1 and VO2 stations who were working guys just east of me and some
minor tropo enhancement on 2M.

My 2M Qs included FN31, FN25, FN05, FN21 plus the locals. This is with 5W to
6-el up only 12'. The wind was too brisk to put the fiberglass fishing pole up
any higher. The 6M antenna was a Par End Fedz with the feed at about 20'.

All-in-all, not a bad first try at this category.
