TH5 up 72ft. IC735/MLA2500
1. 953Qs Saturday but conditions were very strange on Sunday.
Until about 1600z propagation was centered on GA/FLA and very
few New England stations were worked. N2RM, K1AR signals were
way down in the noise but W4/W5 were 59 (shame!)
2. Blew a pin diode in the main rig half an hour into the contest
so had to dig out the Icom backup rig.
3. Ended Saturday needing DC and WY for a clean sweep of US states.
Picked both of those up plus NWT on Sunday. Hint: anyone wanting to
do a contest expedition next year could go to Labrador.
