That just happened! Seriously? A contest weekend with propagation? And was it!!! It's obvious this is the biggest RTTY contest of the year. Less than standing room only on 20 meters. I saw RTTY signals at times from 14.058 to 14.140, solid! Extremely fun to have two great evening/morning openings into Europe. I could not get a run going but it seemed that most could hear me when I called. Some AU on signals but most of the time there was no problem with decoding any of them. I decided a single band effort at the beginning. With the band conditions, I should have tried all band but I stuck to my original plan. I am not disappointed at all, as I have topped my all time high score and also total number of QSO's. A small station effort and my operational times made the best of the great propagation. Gotta sort through my notes and I will do a detailed overview on my blog site. My butt needs to divorce my chair and I need to work on getting the blood flow back into my legs. So many great highlights, so many familiar callsigns, and only a few low lights. I think Alaska was well represented this weekend as I was lucky enough to work several of my long distant neighbors. Thanks for each and every QSO. Temperatures this morning were -30F and I believe we will be colder than that tonight. It was warm and cozy in the shack and extremely easy to stay focused on chasing multipliers and calling CQ for hours at a time. I can't believe how fast 30 hours went.
