K3 + SPE 1.3K, 5 el yagi at 50 feet I never turned the radio on Friday evening. I might have missed the Es opening to the southeast. I had no locals to contact and did not work any US stations on Saturday. I only worked some South American stations via TEP on Saturday. On Sunday I got in on the Es opening to the northwest and worked seven states and British Columbia. The TEP to SA was a lot weaker on Sunday. I watched the DXMaps and monitored the telnet spots inside my house and didn't go out to the shack until I could see there was some possible paths. This was very much like a VHF contest. There was a very interesting propagation phenomenon a couple times when a California station in the Bay Area would peak to well over S9 for only the duration of the call sign and then would be gone. The peak was never long enough to make a contact. A couple of us discussed the possibility that this may have been a reflection off an airplane flying down the Central Valley. I am shielded from the Central Valley by 14,000 foot mountains 73, Kurt W6PH
