Possibly the worst 10M contest in memory, and there aren't enough drugs to make me want to stay in the chair for a whole weekend of this kind of torture, so I just got on now and then over the weekend, not that it made much difference. With the exception of a pipeline opening to Florida on Saturday morning, the band was pretty much uniformly awful both days. The only thing worse than this is a VHF contest. Can it get any worse? YOU BET. We're not at the bottom of the cycle yet, and there weren't any solar flares over the weekend, as far as I'm aware. Bog help us. Thanks to all who called me; I regret that my noise level was somewhat high and there were times I could hear traces of signals, but they were buried by noise. And oh - just a thought - I enjoy a challenge as much as the next person, but does anyone have any idea why the ARRL chooses to hold the 10 Meter contest at a time of year when, in the northern hemisphere of our planet (where the great majority stations reside), there is a minimum of sunlight, which is what makes 10 Meters work?
