The contest conditions did not meet initial expectations, 6m CW was thought to be the workhorse of the contest, while 2m and 70cm were to be used to help with multipliers. The station was setup to meet those expectations, however I was able to make more QSOs on 70cm than on 6m. Digital modes were not used in the contest. The total number of CW QSOs was 3. As a CW op I missed running more QSOs and mults on 6m - I'm not sure if the low number of CW QSOs is due to a local preference for voice, regional ham density, propagation, or another factor. The propagation to the east on 2m was surprising and welcomed. Thanks to the rover stations who made the contest interesting and ops who helped me out, both heavily added to the store Many thanks for Richard, K5NA and Susan, K5DU for allowing me the use of their station.
