I heard guys working you, but never heard you. No one heard our 1.5W peanut whistle except during the strong opening from 0030 to 0300Z Sunday (Sat evening). We worked 16 station in 14 grids, in CO, UT, WY ID & NM.

I'm sorry to hear your VHF contest experience was less than sterling.
On Saturday, I worked several stations in Puerto Rico and one in Cuba,
but missed P43A. Later the band shifted to Texas and the mid-west for
Sunday morning was equally outstanding with the Seattle area, British
Columbia and Alberta, Canada, logged.
I used only 100 watts and an M2 6M5XHP at 20 feet, operating portable
from Grid DM23. It was 105 degrees in the shade, and no shade.
There was plenty of magic in the band this weekend.
