This was our sixth K8MQP multi-single operation from the QTH of Ken, W8MJ in Livingston County. Pretty much the same antennas and station arrangement We had two full-time and three part time ops to keep the rigs covered. We started out on 40M with good rates, but even then the band seemed long and not a lot of in-state stations were worked. The big surprise was 20 SSB providing 108 QSOs during the 18Z hour an additional partial hours of good rates later. 75M phone started producing well as early as the 21Z hour, but the band got very noisy as darkness fell and we had to resort to using Ken's K9AY loop and beverages to hear many of the signals. The lack of short skip made it difficult to hear the mobiles (not that we didn't try). So we had only one mobile QSO, with K8IR/CRAW on 80 SSB of all places. As the result, our mults were down but our QSOs were up, and all the ops had a good time. Thanks to everyone for the QSOs, 73 de Dave/K8CC for the K8MQP Operating Team
