Congrats to Dave K1WHS working over 100 Q's from Maine, outstanding!

Can't hold a candle to that, worked only 57 Q's, 19 Grids.
Did OK to the south as far as KN4SM FM16,
caught W1LE in FN51, and KA1ZE/3 in FN01,
but missed all the grids in upstate and WNY, probably because
I had such a high noise level in that direction all night.
I was glad to work W1AIM FN34, VE2DSB FN35,
and VE2NRG FN25 to the north. This is still pretty good
for just a small 6 el yagi at 40' and 400W, and an improved
score compared to last year so really can't complain.
TNX to all for getting on the air and making this such fun!
-73, Ron WZ1V FN31rh
