| An observation...
| I noticed in the ARRL Contest on Sunday that the first US station to appear
| on 10m was W3LPL, at about 1120z, around 28.011. It's interesting that they
| were up to an S8 or more, and no other W/VE stations had even begun to
| appear. It would be interesting to compare the LPL 10m antenna system with
| the other east coast big guns, because they were obviously doing something
| well different. This phenomenon only lasted about 15 mins. Maybe other
| Europeans noticed?

In Finland the 1st NA station (both days) on 10ms was VO1MP. He was audible at least 20 minutes before any USA stations. The 1st USA on Saturday was K1RX. On Sunday K1s and K2s were S9 at the time when K3LR or W3LPL were just in the noise.
