Score includes 500 bonus points, got all of the bonuses pretty easily. I was surprised at the results compared to other out of state scores, because I was far from in the best location to work NC on 40 (beaten by VE3UTT many times and more than once by OM2VL starting in 19Z hour!). And, even on 80 where first Q's were in the 20Z hour (unheard of with higher solar activity), there were some loud and very weak signals as well after dark. On 40 southern and far western NC were OK to great most of the day, but from about Raleigh north and NE NC, signals from 19Z onward and to some degree earlier were skipping over me which meant missing a lot of the mobiles roaming around. K5CM/M? was never loud on 40, weak on 80 too. So, I was lucky not to be beaten on Q's and mults. Many thanks to all of the mobiles: Bert, N4CW and K3TD operated by Jim, K4PQL kept going the entire 10 hours. I think I missed Jim in quite a few counties (skipping over) as was probably the case with K5CM. NC4QP was worked 4 times for 16 Q's which was about 5.5% of my Q's. N4CW was worked 15 times, K3TD 13 times, and K5CM 13 in many fewer different events due to running lines. Phone activity was pretty decent, but below other years with better conditions. If you can't work your own state (40M), you tend to get discouraged. I would guess the 54 Q's each made on 75/80M was easily a personal best. Thanks to all of the stations who got on the air and good overall county coverage; I probably missed at least 5 counties that were active. 73, Jeff
