My results were much less than I've been able to produce in previous
contests & sprints.
Not sure why...conditions, method of operating, weather being way too
nice to be inside
playing with the radio, maybe all of the above?
I did make six contacts to three grids in Illinois, distances ranged
from 77 to 97 miles.
Heard nothing to the NE, N, NW, W, or SW of my QTH.
W9SNR/r, 1296, EN52HV to EN62CC = 156.84 km
W9SNR/r, 902, EN52HV to EN62CC = 156.84 km
W9SNR/r, 1296, EN52HV to EN52XC = 140.35 km
W9SNR/r, 902, EN52HV to EN52XC = 140.35 km
WB8BZK/R, 1296, EN52HV to EN52XC = 140.35 km
W9ZIH, 1296, EN52HV to EN51NV = 118.54 km
Adding up the distances ( no mults) = 853.27 km
No opportunities to check out my new 2304 MHz capability.
Thanks to K8TQK, K8MD, K9JK/R, and WB8BZK/R for attempting contacts.
Sorry that I missed the rest of the regulars, hope to work you all next
