Lots of fun! This was another all-dipole event. 160/80M: Trapped dipole at 30ft. 40M: Dipole at 25 ft. 20M: 2el wire beam at 20ft. 15M 2el wire beam at 20ft. 10M: Sloper to US, top at 20ft. 600watts output on each band. There was favorable ground slope on each band to the ocean about 1/2 mile away. Somehow, 5 Europeans found us on 160M for Qs. That was 5 more than found us on 10M- the closest station to Europe on 10M that we worked was probably W1KM on Cape Cod. 10M had some openings on Sunday- did find KH6, ZL, and VK, in addition to many of the other nearby Caribbean mults. Find a CQ frequency and they will find you. Saturday was much better than Sunday on the high bands. On 15M Sunday, I worked a grand total of 5 Europeans, and they were all pee weak. Last one was worked before 1500Z, so it was a looooong afternoon of CQing on 15M. I was able to intersperse some 10M running (or was it crawling?) Sunday afternoon, but the stations just weren't there. Even the USA, that was loud and easy to work on Saturday, was tough on Sunday. There was also fast QSB; if a 6-character call sign started to reply, often I would get the first 3 letters and QSB would take out the last 3. Then you get into repeats, and the rate goes to hell. Friday night, it was tough to hear anything on 160M. Even the USA was difficult, so we spent the time on 80M. In any case, we were the winners again! We had more fun than anyone! Thanks to Rudy N2WQ for the use of Chillax Roatan. Dennis HQ9A HR9/W1UE W1UE
