Last year I ran high power in this contest, this year I decided to go Single Op
Low Power, instead. Maybe this wasn't a good year to do that.

Propagation was disappointing, to say the least. By Saturday evening, I was
about ready to throw in the towel, but I decided to stick it out. I wasn't
really disappointed I did that; Sunday was much better than Saturday, but not
as good as I had hoped. We've seen a few sunspots and we're all hoping things
are going to turn around now, but on and on we go and it really doesn't get any

One bright spot was that I had more multipliers than last year, even with
running less power, but I missed two states plus DC (where were ND and DE,
anyway?). Last year I worked them all. I got the same number of provinces as
last year and had 9 more countries, so I guess I shouldn't complain too much
about propagation.

That's it for this time around, hopefully a year from now we'll all have better
conditions to work with.
