Conditions were pretty good on 20M through 160M. Top band didn't see much action, though I was there bleating out CQs to get whomever strayed down there in the final hour. Got 8 additional Qs by going to 160M and sure appreciated the calls. 80M as pretty solid with the triangular array of verticals pointed SE or SW to cover the 7th call area pretty well. The band was strong even to New England, where I kept working stations until the session there ended at 0500z. Didn't really miss running high power with the bands open no nicely, and assume noise wasn't a problem at the other end o 80M and 40M. Was surprised to so readily work the close-in states on 20M -- most years it is tough to work WA, MT and ID until I go to 40M, but no trouble this time. On 15M, I landed four Qs and four counties across NV, UT and WY which is four more than I figured I'd get by going up there. Managed to beat my previous best score from 2011 (31,374) by a healthy margin. Love the 7QP -- thanks to everyone who got on for the day! -- Bud VA7ST Zone Zero -- the podcast for casual but avid contesters
