Wow, a fun filled digital weekend! 20 meters died quickly on Friday night but by early Saturday morning, EU was coming in pretty good. Lots of polar flutter made it harder than normal but still lots of great signals from over the pole. 20 meters was wall to wall from 14048 to 14149 Saturday and Sunday! Only state missed was WY! A personal best for me in this contest thanks to 20 meters. Some new local line noise kept me from the low bands but hopefully that will be resolved soon per the local power company. I kept checking 15 meters and nothing heard with the exception of SV8CS on 15 meters around 1648z on Saturday!! I called with all I had but my small signal was unable to be heard. A few stations asked for my state, which I gladly gave but AK was "DX" in this one. Confusing to some and rightfully so as I always have to check to make sure. There is no confusion about when winter arrived this year as it turned out to be this weekend! Woke up Sunday morning to a measured 5 1/2 inches of fresh snow. Logs will be uploaded to LOTW and my online log search. Due to my line noise I'm sure I missed a few, sorry! Thanks to all for the contacts! See ya in the next RTTY contest.
