 From Zero Land 

Did a simple S&P op on phone to try out the Orion. Sunday afternoon pointed 
the antenna NE looking for New England.  Dead.  Called CQ once and got an 
immediate reply from a SM6, then no more sigs.  Later there was S9SS booming 
in.  Then nothing.  Then a quick QSO with Niger.  Then nothing. 

A bit later called CQ to the west and there was 3D2 on 2nd try.  Nothing 
else.  Then just as the contest ended, there was ZK1, ZL1, and VK, one of 
each and nothing else. 

Guess contests do make propagation on a dead band in Zero land.
