Conditions this year were just weird. Local band noise was sometimes so loud I
could not copy signals that were buried in the mush. This was mostly on 15 &
20m.The First night I did mostly 40m as that band was the quietest.
The second day Saturday seemed a bit more settled and mults and scores tried to
climb out of the ashes at times. Broke at sundown here and came back to the
radio at 0911 UTC. My FT-5000 was still sitting on 15m from afternoon mining,
and lo and behold at zero dark thirty in the morning at the BOTTOM of the cycle
out of the muck pops signals from Japan on 15m. They were basically working EUs
but I managed to attract a dozen of so and then went to 20m and worked a bunch
there. The resultant mults accumulated changed the bottom line scoring from
disaster to keeping me entertained quite a bit.
Sunday morning on 20,I could hear Cyprus but it was a one-way megaphone.
A 12db change in the score kept any reading time for naps.
Youngest age 20 - oldest 93.
