Comments: Started out pretty wimpy as far as dx goes. 40 and 80 were
pretty good for stateside - lots of prefixes.
DX seemed to perk up on 20 about noon on Saturday - EU started coming
through great. Had a wedding to attend
with the family on Sat - so took a break from about 3-9 PM - then Sunday
AM to church with family....boy life does
get in the way of contesting sometimes...hihi. Sat night was still
pretty good and early Sunday morning too.
Good dx on 40 mtrs below 7100...but they weren't listening up very much!
Some good runs on 20 on Sunday
afternoon also...lots a new calls - maybe the no code is working???
Wonder if CW weekend will have as many
new calls as ssb weekend? Maybe we'll have another good surprise.
Overall a little better than last year even though
I seemed to have started slower. 20 was obviously my bread and
butter...but also pleasantly surprised with how 80 and
40 worked out too. Thanks for the Q's and hope to work you in WPX CW.
73's - Dick
