Not much luck the first weekend. I only operated one day. I Tried a schedule for a east-west path the length of Lake Erie without success from the west end. Closer in, I could not get other Lake Erie operator's attention on the air even though I could hear them, I did not have 2m for liaison, and my cell phone couldn't call into Canada. The 2nd weekend was very productive from the west coast of Michigan across to Wisconsin as the rover pack there went up and down the shore line. Signals were so loud toward the end of the contest that I made QSOs with the dish pointed 180 degrees the wrong way just for laughs. They were still S9. One of the MI ops was clearly receiving the WI crowd with the coax disconnected from his dish (just an SMA connector for an "antenna". I think the distance was 175km. Lots of fun and the weather mostly cooperated (just a few passing sprinkles).
