Rigs: IC-7300 (6m), IC-275H (2m) Pwr: 100W on 6 and 2m Ants: - single Par Electronics Omniangle (halo-type) for 6m @30ft - stacked pair Par Electronics Omniangles for 2m @30ft Elev: 1900+ ft This is the first time I put a semi-serious effort into a VHF contest from this location. I'm afraid I wasn't able to put as much time into it as I had hoped due to several projects I was working on this weekend. I probably missed a few band openings because of that. I was mainly interested in finding out what I would be able to do on 2 meters from here, and if it would be worth my time to put some multi element antennas up. Usually I build my own antennas, but since I just don't have the time for that anymore it seems, I decided to purchase Omniangles from Par Electronics. They seem to work very well. I did build a SO2R setup just before the contest so that I could switch between radios with the flick of a switch so that I didn't have to deal with multiple headsets or microphones. Many thanks to the rovers! I've tried my hand at that myself a few years ago (in SC). I can truly appreciate the effort you put in to be on the air from so many grids. That takes a serious commitment and is no easy task! 73, --Alex KR1ST
