An hour here, 10 mins there. Was able to work a handful of GA stns by CQing, but surprised by the number of out of state fellas (& EU's) that called me. I can't imagine that when my CQ was usually something along the lines of: 'CQ GA CQ GA VE9AA GQP' that they thought I was really in Georgia? (The VE prefix should've been a real big hint, hi hi !)...but it's all good. Just havin' fun, so whatever. Looks like the W4AN/m operation didn't take off, but I did work John and Jeff separately. Sorry I could not QSY to 160m for a sked John, but I had to QRT. Did manage 1 GA QSO on 160m near the end, and not in total darkness either. At roughly 1300miles, GA is just about at the limits of what I can do on 40m during full sun, but even so, mostly only home stations were workable until an hour or so before sundown and then I did have fun hunting the mobiles. 20m was OK, but not a peep on 15m. I even alternated/dual CQ'd both afternoons, but only lit up the PJ2A skimmer on 15m and lots of others on 20m of course. 80m was a struggle (QRN + SUN), but there were a few home stns and a couple mobile Q's made at the end. All in all, I felt activity was down from previous years, but I didn't put in a full time effort. Thanks to all the GA stns for getting on ! Worked all the 1x1 special event N4-single letter callsigns. Notable mobiles: N0G, N4N, KN4Y....home stn John, K4BAI in here most of the contest.
