what it felt like doing this contest with no relief from the High A index. I am
beginning to wonder if poorer SSN but a more stable Sun is better than higher
SFI. For score wise, this one boosts your early ego as they add the kM between
maidenhead points - so it was fairly easy to get to 1M+ but if you couldn't not
find any DX, it took a lot longer to get the totals up. The DX was sparse here in the lower corner of the Left Coast and I was
disappointed to work so few JAs - especially Saturday/Sunday morning. The other unique feature of this contest was it's division of 3 distinct
periods with everyone being off at the same time. Good for resting - but only
the last two hours brought ANYTHING of value of the last eight hour session. K1SFA (she works at the League) was my only ALL-BANDS contact and when I looked
her up on QRZ, it shows that she is an accomplished RTTY contester. Thanks for all the Q's WN6K, Paul
