The poor band conditions and low participation made 
this a character-building experience.

20m was okay for the first hour. Then it thinned out 
and only the same few loud CQers. I stayed on 20m 
for two hours because it was still 20 minutes before 
sunset and 40m would be even harder. 

40m slowly got better - people could finally hear 
me. But by 0330z everyone was gone from 40m, and I 
had to brave 80m, even though only one hour past 

80m SSB while QRP this early in the evening is really 
a laugh. When I can work anyone at all it seems like 
a miracle! Anyone who got me in the log has good ears!
