I found it tough going except for 75M. In 2015 80 and 40 both went very well
with 20 and 15 being so-so. Last year 80 was good but 40 was way down and 20/15
so-so again. This year 80 was good but 40 was really tough with 20 and 15
remaining so-so. In 15 and 16 I had a C3S at 65 ft and rotatable dipole for 40
at 73 feet. Dipole on 80 at 70 ft. This year it's an A3s at 30 ft on 15 and 10,
two dipoles in opposite directions on 20 at 70 ft and ditto on 40. Based on what
I remember seeing in write ups, it seems that in general the PVRC gang did
better on 75 than 40 or the high bands. Must have been conditions - bands were
kind of funky. Perhaps if this persists next year, I'll do a 75M only effort
only to make sure it remains fun for me! Only mult missed with ND (my home
state). Based again on reading write-ups, looks like there was some ND activity
right at the end.
