The computer says I operated 6 hours, but it seemed much
longer. Unless the wwv A-index has been less than 5 for
about a week, 160 and 80 don't open to EU or JA. Worked
all the club stations on the other bands, all S&P. CQing
doesn't work at this point in the sunspot cyle.
Seems from all the discussion that anyone's favorite
contest is the one they have a chance of winning. I guess
that makes sense. Good thing that the more dogmatic amongst
us don't live in the center of the country, because then
they probably wouldn't be contesting at all.

73's  Bill WB0O, 10 miles south of the Canadian border
in Northern North Dakota.

W2VJN SOAB Unassisted.		Umpqua, Oregon
High Power			26 Hours (per CT)

160	11	9
80	59	24
40	363	48
20	380	74
15	124	38
10	17	13
----------------------
954	206	Score = 589,572

Equipment: IC765, Titan amp, 486-66 running CT 9.13
Antennas: 204BA at 50' and dipoles.

Conditions were quite good considering the solar flux level. Worked
P49V, HH2PK, JA3ZOH and KL7Y on 6 bands.  Had HL5BVQ move me from
80 meters to 1801 for a solid qso there.

Thursday afternoon the local power company showed up with three
trucks and 8 men in response to my complaint about radio noise.
(I love Oregon.)  They changed all the bells and bugs on two
poles and presto, the noise was gone!
