Well I operated out of the rover parked in the driveway at Dad's house
which really wasn't the best location and it didn't help that band
conditions were dismal.  Never heard K1WHS or K1TEO up to the North East. 
In fact the furthest north was FN10.  Conditions to the south were a
little bit better as i worked FM06 on CW.  Most of my contacts were made
in the first hour after which was alot of CQ's with no response.  We will
be working this weekend on integrating a 2304 transverter and beam we
borrowed from Brian ND3F.  We hope to get on the air this weekend at some
point and test it out with Brian and Dave (K1RZ) and anyone else who is
available.  If all goes will we will be on for the 14th.  Not sure if we
are going to move to a better operating location  but we shall see. Anyhow
here are my results from last night:
