Missed ID, AK, and HI for WAS. Heard one ID station S&Ping. Never heard AK or HI.DX worked C6, EA8, KP2, PJ2, and ZF. ZF9CW had strong signal the entire time I heard him. Conditions definitely better Friday night. I was hearing many EU Friday night and Caribbean signals were much stronger as well. I had a pipeline to AZ this time around. Worked 11 stations there. Even 7 CA in log. West is my most difficult direction due to antenna height and orientation. Had a few decent runs Saturday night/Sunday morning. 141 of my 421 came from running. I don't usually do that well with low power and a short (67') single wire antenna. Noise level for most of the time was OK. There were times late Saturday night my noise floor would increase by 10DB. This is by far a personal best in this contest. Had lots of fun. 73 Gene, N9TF Rig: K3S 100 watts to a W8AMZ 67' foot shortened half sloper at 35' apex, aimed about 60 degrees.
