What a great weekend operating at W6HD! I never really got the rate up where I wanted it, but was fairly consistent throughout. John's tribander is at 50', but there is a very steep dropoff to the East - good for DX, but I think that's why I could never get a good domestic run going. EU, on the other hand, was quite a treat. I've only been contesting since 2009 and this is the first time my EU totals have exceeded those from Asia. Working Northern Europe at 2300 local on 15m is something I haven't experienced since I was a teenager in the late 70's. All in all, I would have had more fun running high power, but LP was great training for busting pileups and cultivating patience. Thanks again to John and Jane for their generous hospitality and the use of their wonderful station. I'm in the middle of building up my station again after moving back to CA and hope to begin contesting in earnest again from home next year. As always, thanks to all the casual contesters who came out and handed out Q's and mults. I always try to encourage new hams when I get a call from a low serial number guy on Sunday. They might take a little longer, but hopefully the contesting community will continue to grow. 73, Paul / W7IV
