A very frustrating 36 hours. In the Inter-mountain West, we live and die by 6M propagation. There are very few stations on 2M and above within reach, so we're limited to meteor scatter contacts on 2 and 222 and what little local activity we can kick up on 432/450FM. This year, after a amazing week of propagation, the 6M band did not play along in DM69. We had maybe 4-5 hours of total sporadic E propagation and many hours of watching all the red DXMap lines either extend right over the top of us, extend out into the Pacific Ocean or just sit 100 miles out of reach. Thanks to those we worked on 6 & 2 MSK144 overnight. We didn't attempt any EME QSOs since the degradation was so high - we could barely hear K5QE on 2M.
