The 6 meter fun extended somewhat to the other bands: 2 meters worked stations in IA, MO, and AL. Even 432 got in on the act: AL (Don't have exact grids.) 6 meters continues to the plagued with noise which we suspect is some kind of intermod between two or more of the commercial tv, radio, pager, etc, stations which we share our mountain top. While we're whining: If you looked at the Eskip map during much of the contest you must have noticed the absence of start / stop Eskip contacts in Western NY and Western PA. We did of course have our share, but simply couldn't hear some of the DX (for example, ZF and KP2/KP4) and the western US states. Did work XE, CO/CM, HI, and C6. 2 meters has a spectacular qso total, given that most stations abandoned 2 meters while 6 meters was so open. 222 and 432 had their usual high qso and grid square totals, which really increases our score. Finally, it "pays" to stay on the air until the very end: Our last FOUR contacts were FOUR new grids! Bob, w3idt for the Wopsononock Mountaintop Operators, W3SO
