Tough contest weekend. I would have to give 15 meters a C+ at best and 20 came through late in the afternoon, early evening allowing for a few multipliers I did not think I was going to snag. Still daylight here at the end of the contest so 40 was almost useless. I QSY'ed to 40 meters for Dave, K5GN and to my surprise, we were able to make a QSO (his station did 99% of the work). It was my only QSO but it was not for a lack of trying to work a few 6landers I heard on 40. I had lots of QRN on 20 meters but it's due in part to having neighbors who are normally gone during contest season. I listened several times on 10 meters but not a peep heard a signal seen on the ol spectrum scope. My apologies to WH6R for the dupe. Between my QRN and you being off the corner of the beam, I busted your call and figured it out once you worked a few more stations. It has been a very cool and damp summer here in Alaska so I'm not sure we can actually call it summer. The fall colors will begin to make an appearance this month and the snow won't be far behind. I really enjoy the low power aspect of this contest. Looking forward to another contest season and sure hope 10 meters makes a return! For now, I will take any and all propagation I can get. Thanks for the QSO's! 73, Phil - KL8DX Denali National Park, AK Icom 756PRO @ 100 watts Mosley TA-34-XL @ 43 feet Website - Blog - Office -
