150W, vertical loop @30' fixed NE/SW Hey, look, it's a DX contest again! Best DX conditions since 2002, if not earlier. Still, it can get even better as we get closer to the cycle peak -- the openings will start up a little earlier and shut down a little later. On the flip side, short skip (Es) was darn near nonexistant. I caught a weak opening to the Plains/Rockies in the first couple hours, and one to W8/VE3/WNY right near the end. In particular, apart from scatter, I had no propagation to the mid-Atlantic area which in other years is a big source of QSO points from here. Missed NC, DE, DC and MO. There was no short skip to the southwest either; I only worked four Mexican states, all out west. All in all, great fun... maybe a better antenna next year. 73, -- Ray WQ5L
