For near the bottom of the sunspot cycle, I thought conditions were pretty good. Solar flux started at 69, the K Index was zero, and A Index was single digits. There was no Europe or Asia on 15, but their was a very good opening to Europe on 20. It only lasted for about 90 minutes though. I had some problems, but none turned out to be major. A lot happened around here right before the contest, and I kind of lost my focus. I actually left about 25 QSO's from Friday's practice session in the log, so I was wondering why I had a rush of people duping me! After I figured out what was happening, I deleted those QSO's. 80 Meters was VERY quiet here, so I'm hoping that this is a permanent change to the noise floor in the neighborhood. It was a pleasure to be able to hear on 80. I didn't check 160. Something went goofy in the 40 Meter antenna on Saturday night, but it fixed itself after 30 minutes of unscheduled off time and it never recurred. SWR was 3.5 across the band, and people couldn't hear me. The amplifier showed 1500 watts output. After the break, everything returned to normal. I don't understand what happened. I turn 75 this year, and I can tell that I am losing some of my stamina for full-bore operations like this. It was fun though. Thanks for all the QSO's! Dave Hachadorian, K6LL Yuma, AZ .
