Although this is a fun contest, I didn't plan on operating much, as my home QTH usually has S7-S9 noise (and RX antennas of little/no help) and I didn't go to my alternate 160M contest site which is much more rural. So, I started the contest late, and since I didn't want to be an alligator, I decided to just do a little low power operating. Well, I was a little surprised to only have S3 noise on the TX antenna, and third QSO was TM6M (great ears). Called CQ and was pleased to have back to back 117 hours, which is darn good low power. I only planned to operate just a couple hours, but ended up operating 5 the first night and 4 the second. Heard a bit of DX, but between being in the upper Midwest and low power, not many heard me.
