We assumed conditions would be better this weekend. If it was - then activity definitely was not. Low band conditions seemed decent, but the activity level seemed very low. I speculate that most participants got a lot of rest each night. 48 of our 51 QSOs on 160m came during one 15 minute spurt early Friday and that was it. The high bands were a challenge as well. We spent about 90 minutes each morning waiting to QSY to 15m while listening to the Big Island KH6's run stations we could not hear. The 10m opening appeared to be E's as the Big Island guys were mostly not readable aside from some fluttery echos you sometimes hear when you're just outside the range of the Es cloud - working stations who were mostly inaudible aside from a couple loud W6s. I would never have guessed that 200 miles would make that much of a difference. We held our own fine on the low bands, but there was no rate aside from 40m. Due to work, I delegated myself to a "use only if needed" status and thus Dan, Mark, and Eran did an excellent job with the lion's share of operating. Despite conditions, everyone had an outstanding time and no one feels like they left any potential QSOs unworked. KH6LC remarked about working VY0ERC - WH7W just happened to tune across that QSO in progress, jumped up a couple KC, called CQ, and worked them right after Lloyd. Moments like that makes this game so much fun year after year. We are all again so very thankful to Alex, who allowed us to pilot his station while he was off-island. For the team, 73, Dave N2NL/KH6
