Conditions seemed real good at the start of the contest as QSO's were plentiful and the rates were right up there. But it became apparent that the long haul conditions were anemic. West coast stations were few and Pacific NW stations even fewer. The Europeans I worked were mostly the large stations. Even signals from the Caribbean were lackluster. Saturday conditions were no better and the contest had all the ambiance of watching paint dry. It was a disappointing after a fast start. The beverage antennas worked very nicely on Friday night, but were so-so on Saturday. Perhaps the colder WX on Friday helped them (nothing like a cold beverage...). Hopefully the Stew and CQ 160 will bring better results!
