Rough conditions on Saturday but it got a bit better on Sunday in the late-afternoon. With low and temporary antennas, it was mostly S & P from this QTH. Best moment was working C6ATA for new one on 6. This contest teaches humility - in the middle of an S-9 data exchange and the band drops out and you lose the QSO; never to be regained! You learn to roll with the punches. In these low-sunspot years, bigger and higher antennas and "more power" is needed. Even then, I heard some stations calling and calling with no responses. I also think the turn-out of participants was pretty light, compared to two or three years ago unless they were all up on the JT9 and JT65 portion. No matter what, chalk it all up to "magic." I'm sure I'll be back in there next year.
