I realize that I'm only running 100W to an all band vertical, and that I'm on the NE edge of NA, and off the back of most station's beams, but I easily called 3 to 4 times as many stations than I worked. I called CQ for 10 minutes at a time several times and had 2 callers. After 86 S&P QSOs, I was finally spotted. I then managed to work 44 Qs in about an hour (not high rate I know), but that was more than half of the QSOs than I'd worked the whole contest to that point! Remind me not to use a special prefix in SS again. The number of stations that didn't want to copy the "CH" prefix surprised me. Special prefix for 150th Anniversary of Canadian Confederation.
