I guess they figured the FCC was one of those non-essential branches of the
government that got a long weekend off.   :-)

In casual listening on Saturday night of SSB SS I was amazed at the number
of US operators who were working VE9AA below 3750. I guess it's dog eat dog
, but don't get caught.

Yes...SF DOES exist. However, I chose to make my effort in CW this year,
and not SSB. AA6YX was on, but N6RA and W6BIP seemed to not be around.
I did 760 Q's last year in SSB, 860 this year in CW. Did get on Sun
morning on 15 and had a great run on SSB this year just to do the 100 Q
thing...the rate meter stayed over 100 for 2 hours; at that moment, I
figured that I goofed, and should have played in the entire contest.
Other commitments did not allow operation this year in SSB. Maybe
both modes next year - there seems to be some demand for this section.

Well since I've seen this from several "left coast" op's I just have to
comment...80 meters gets so crowded at the peak on Saturday night, that
QRM, not QRN is the biggest enemy.  It's hard to find a space with more
than 500 cycles on either side.  Yes, it was noisy as well, but that wasnt
the biggest problem.  Put a few hundred serious contesters calling CQ along
with the multitude of net drivers and what do you get?  80 meters is a great 
band for the "right coast" propagation-wise - nice nonstop short-skip to
work the endless pile of 1's thru 4's (just look at everyone's breakdown
from over here)... almost as good as the "high" bands are bad!  

40 meters would be the band if it werent for the EU BC noise that, BTW, 
started here at 12:30 in the afternoon on Sunday!  40 meters on Sunday AM was
almost as bad as 75 Saturday night...no BC and short skip = big rates if you
can keep your frequency clear.
