FT1000MP, Alpha 78, 1 KW, TH6DXX, dipole, inverted vee.  10 dead.  15 very weak.
 No SSB stations heard on 15.  20M seemed weak too and power line noise was
bothersome.  40M antenna had one antenna only about 8' up, so it sloped from
45' to 8'.  Signals on 40 and 80 seemed weaker than normal and rapid QSB was
very bad.  80M seemed better before dark on the weat coast.  Then QRN built up
and most signals dropped.  Went to bed 05Z and 80 and 40 seemed great when got
back on at 1140Z, but there wasn't much activity.  Seemed very little phone
activity on the low bands compared to the CW activity there.  Didn't try 160. 
Only one 15M QSO on Sunday. Signals on 20 were weaker Sunday than Saturday. 
Time limited by a tennis match Saturday and by church and family activities on
Sunday.  Thanks for all the QSOs, especially the mobile and portable stations. 
Missed SBEN.  Never heard it, but know others worked it, so all counties were
active.  Hope to see you all next year with better conditions.  73, John,
