I thought that I would try something different from roving this year:
Hilltop QRP.  It was a real challenge and my hat goes off to all of the
hilltop QRP ops!  I heard many more stations than I was able to work.  A
little frustrating but I enjoyed the change.  Fairly flat conditions for the
entire 6 hour period that I operated between 3pm and 9pm on Saturday.  Those
hilltop operators who held off the start of their operating time until
Sunday morning may have done better.  That is an additional wild card with
the hilltop category.

73, Mike WB8BZK
