One of my Worst Starts ever. I had put off replacing my broken / fallen 80M dipole until Friday afternoon, plus installing dedicated 2M link with Locals to help coach / spot for them. After cleaning out most of the available mults on 40M Saturday morning I *went to bed* for a couple of hours. I just wasn't up to fighting any more Europeans working Europeans after doing that all night on 40 and 80 Meters! I was ready to make this a Low Band Only Effort. After a good nap, I got back in the game but ended up missing MANY EU mults on 20 and maybe 15M (was it open?). By 0700Z Sunday, I was too tired to have to go back to 40M so I went to bed (again). Then I overslept Sunday Morning, starting back at 1400Z on 20M. Getting to 15M later in the morning yielded only CT, CU, EA, and F from Europe. Sunday afternoon was INCREDIBLE! 40M was wide open to Europe at 2 pm CST (2000Z). 20M was open to the Pacific with very strong JA's but Not a Trace of the BV, BY, HL, UA0, VR2, or 9M6 stations being spotted by stations further West. At the End, I decided to go back to 80M where I heard 4L0A, 5H3EE, 8Q7DV, and TA3D running Europe. I did manage to work TA3KZ plus couple of closer multipliers. Hearing so many Asians on 80M was FUN, even if I didn't work several of them. Conditions at the End of the Contest were MUCH Better than the Beginning! ALL QSO's were either S&P or from Packet Spots with a heavy emphasis on Multipliers. NO Runs. So it goes. I hope I will be better prepared for the next one. I'm still working on the Log / Statistics. No way to do this in one day! 6 Banders = ZERO due to ZERO stations heard on 10 Meters! 5 Banders = 10 stations 3X CU HC8 KP2 PJ4 TO4 V4 VP2M YN 4 Banders = 17 stations 5K0 8P CT9 D4 EF8 J39 J68 J88 KH7 M6 OA PJ2 PZ V3 ZF ZS4 3 Banders = 33 stations 5H 6V 6Y EA EA8 FJ FM J3 LX OX RW2 SV9 TO3R V2 YS ZM ZS 2 Banders = 58 stations 1 Banders = 306 stations Thanks to KG4CUY for writing a program to create a Callsign Listing by Number of Bands showing which bands were worked derived from the Cabrillo Log file.
