At the WB0DRL contest station (EM18) we had good results on 6 Meters In the 
June VHF QSO Party with a single Cushcraft Boomer at 75 feet and a 6 el. 
Hygain at 40 feet pointed west. The 'DRL station sits in a hill with 
negative horizon in all directions except due west. Almost all of our Es 
QSOs were single hop, so a stack probably not needed. Did OK on mult-hop Es, 
with QSOs into the Carib., Central America, KL7 and JA. The lower yagi never 
seemed better than the high one, even on short Es to Colorado. The higher 
yagi was definitely better on Es to California.
