I cannot comment on 2m and above, since I was limited to 6 meters during this contest, but these were some of the worst conditions I have seen for a June contest, and I have been on 6 since 1992.

We only had 2 very short Eskip openings that I caught-one saturday night around 0300z to Utah, which lasted about 20 minutes, and one Sunday night from 0115Z to around 0215Z to MD, VA, OH, PA, KY, and IL.  Other than that, just meteor pings and very short Es bursts.

I was happy that I could give out EM05 to a couple of people, but of course the band opened much better once I got back to my home grid.  Hope others had better conditions there.
