Arrived at site (summer cottage) 3 hours before the start. Got equipment and main antennas set up 3 minutes before the start! The 2 m EME antenna was assembled during the contest in periods when 6 m wasn't open. 6 m Es was quite good on Saturday, but we were surprised to find that there was much more activity on the new FT8 mode than on SSB or CW. 2 m was a slog, as usual, quite far from any centres of activity. But we did better on 2 m EME than previously, with a number of European stations in the log. Sunday was pretty slow on both bands, as were the operators by this time, and we had to take an hour or so off due to thunderstorms. I found myself wishing there were more rovers active so we'd have someone to work. Thanks to VA3ELE and VE3AXC for all their efforts at providing equipment station assembly and tear-down, operating, providing and cooking food, washing dishes etc.! And to VE3WJ for loaning us the 2 m amplifier, even although he was unable to join us this year. 73, Steve VE3SMA
