Pretty rough conditions on 40 and 20 with S6 noise levels. Not too many on this

year that I heard. 100 watts into a G5RV up 20 foot.

My first ever MD-DC QSO party!

When things got slow in WAE CW I defected to MD QSO party and ran phone for a
couple stretches. Very nice string of callers, almost all "new to
me"! Thanks for the Q's

Kenwood TS-870 100 watts into my homemade ladder line fed dipole up about 25
feet. Mostly horrible band conditions. Managed to get 6 club stations, got a
mobile 5 times, and the rest were standard - all SSB. Was 2 QSOs short of last
year (and had 2 digital QSOs last year, so that was the difference), but I
remember last year conditions were better. Still, a reasonable outcome, and
hopefully a reasonable showing. Thanks for the fun!

Thanks for all the Q's. I had limited time to participate this year.

Band conditions were average at best. Much QRN much of Saturday, and sunspot
havoc both Saturday and Sunday limited contacts. Seemed to be fewer MDC
stations active this year...not sure why. Thanks to all the the stations who
dug me out of the mud, and even the occasional one who said I had a nice
signal, despite running 5 watts to wire antennas.

Rig: FT-1000MP at 5 watts, dipole antennas on 40 and 20 and an inverted V on
80.

I usually give the MDCQP a full-time effort, but I had several non-ham projects
that had to be completed on Saturday. I also had family commitments on Sunday
too. So I put in several hours and we'll see what happens. Overall, band
conditions were very poor from SC to MDC. I usually have a pipeline on 40m and
some prop on 20m, but not this year. I made all on 40m except for one on 80m.
Every contact made was one that took a few repeats. I only heard a few stations
on CW too. Luckily I found W3VPR on 40m CW and Phone. I'll give it a better try
next year.
