Decided to do a 15 meter SO/SB entry on this rather than my continued 20 meter SO/SB from previous years. The solar flare put the damper on any great numbers for Sunday. Saturday started out slow but picked up later in the day nicely. When it came to Sunday, my longest CQ between QSO's was 27 minutes! Rough to say the least. SOAPBOX A little more than annoyed at what seems to be more folks just landing on a frequency and calling CQ without as much as a "QRL" or ?? to see if the frequency was in use. I was chased off my run frequency on more occasions by this poor, what seems to be, growing practice. OFF SOAPBOX Lots of great friends encountered and lots of great DX heard that I obviously could not work, being DX myself. Saturday picked up in the afternoon and 15 meters sounded like a typical contest weekend, wall to wall signals, stretching pretty high up the band. I missed DC, WV, SD for lower 48 and as normal, I only got a handful of VE sections missing, NS, NF, LB, QC, NT, YT and NU. I was extremely excited to have W3MLK (DE), VY2OX (PEI) and N7NG (WY) call in for final stretch mults! If they were all easy, it wouldn't be contesting! Thanks for the QSO's! 73, Phil KL8DX Denali National Park, Alaska Office: Website: Blog:
