Overall results were similar to last year, but came from somewhat different sources. August was was poor, only 8 QSOs and no big DX. In September, I went partway up the west side of Lake Michigan with K9PW, K9JK, W9SZ, and sometimes KA9VDU on Saturday, and stayed inland in EN51xr on Sunday. The Lake Michigan run produced 48 QSOs and the other 18 were from inland locations. The most impressive QSOs were the ones made on 47 GHz using a loaner rig from K9PW. This was basically a 47GHz "handheld": a bare mixer Kuhne XVTR with a small horn driven by an FT817. While the path was only 1 km, the signals were VERY loud. Now, I'm thinking about getting something similar for myself next year. Best DX on 10 GHz was 335 km, only 1 km on 24 & 47 GHz.
