Rig: TS2000 Antennas: 6M -- HB 7 el at 10M (ARRL Antenna Book) 2M -- 12el K1FO at 12M (K1WHS kit) 70cm -- M^2 440-18 at 11M (SK inherited) As I was involved in Boxboro! 2017 as a FEMARA committee member, I was only able to operated in the evenings. (For those who wonder why Boxboro! is the weekend of the VHF Contest, try finding a decent conference hotel, in the right area, on a weekend in September, and lock it up for eight years... It was the only weekend available.) There was little activity when I was on. It seemed like a lot of the individuals I used to hear, or who would answer my CQs, were not operating. Most of the contacts were (at least) three-banders, and the activity was slow enough, that we could work all three bands when first contacted. HOWEVER, many of the stations I heard, especially late in the contest, did not announce their calls when setting up QSYs to other bands. Perhaps I (and they) missed some Qs because I didn't know I had not worked them. PLEASE, when about to QSY, give your call and ask if there are any others on frequency and waiting for a Q! This was the 20th year I have operated this contest. 73 -- Larry -- W1DYJ
