I was only able to operate the last 6 hours of the contest but had fun even if the bands were far from great. I operated mostly CW but did venture to SSB in an attempt to get a few more needed multipliers. While I was tuning for multipliers on SSB, I ran across a big signal which was AG5Z, Larry. I made a contact with Larry which gave me my final state needed to complete my Triple Play award! I missed the following; NT, NL, NU, and YT. Very slow going and could not get any good rates going as my best was a very brief 116 QSO's per hour. Average was less than half of that. Had to find my good luck charm when N4ZZ sent me 666 as an exchange. Weather started out Friday night at 25 below zero and ended up at 14 above zero at the end of the contest. The winds are bringing 50+ mph gusts and warmer temps yet once again. This created a bit of noise which led to a few more repeat requests. Merry Christmas & Happy New Year! 73, Phil KL8DX Denali National Park, AK
