First, thanks to all the hard-working County DXpeditioners who spend lots of time, money, and effort to help put some very sparsely populated California Counties on the air. With the low K-index, conditions seemed pretty good, but activity on CW seemed way down, and I logged 160 fewer CW QSOs than last year. Missed Alaska and North Dakota -- did anyone work those on CW? 10m seemed to open briefly both days, but it was spotlight propagation, and I just couldn't seem to get much going there. Conditions on 160m at 0500z were also just fair. Worked quite a number of Europeans on 20 and 15, some very loud. Very few JAs. Struggled with the software; the automated alternating CQ scenario refused to send any CW after sending the CQ, so I had to do it all manually the entire contest, requiring lots of button-pressing. Further investigation required.
