I was surprised to find loud Michigan stations on 40 meters at the start. From what callers told me, the long band put a damper on in-state QSOs. 40 meters was my money band, although in the evening the band went way long and I couldn't hear MI anymore. 80 meters was hard for everyone with the ridiculous static crashes. I had short spurts of propagation on 20 meters in the afternoon and probably should have worked that harder. I ended up with a lot fewer CW QSOs and multipliers than I expected from looking at the results of past MIQPs. Don't know if that was my operating choices or the activity/conditions this year. There were quite a few casual phone ops to keep my interest, although the last couple hours were pretty slow. K8IR led the mobile pack with 15 QSOs and 14 counties. Also worked W8RU (6/4), K7TH (5/5) and W8UE (3/2). Thanks to the sponsors and all the Michigan stations that got on even though conditions weren't the best. TS-590S (x2), SPE 1.3K-FA, ACOM 1000 Force 12 XR6 (2 el) at 25 feet for 20 Inverted Vs at 30-40 feet for 40 and 80
