The thing about operating in the Hilltopper category in this contest is that you have six hours of operating time and hope the six hours you pick has a 6m opening. I didn't do so well this year. I heard that 6m was pretty good on Saturday. I operated on Sunday. 6m tried to open to the southwest during some of my time on the air and briefly to New England, but they were not great openings. I worked XE2X (who makes his own propagation) and a handful of W5's. I also worked K1TOL (who also makes his own propagation). Other than that it was mostly the usual "locals" (out to ~150 miles) on both bands. After about 5 hours I wasn't hearing anyone new to work, so I wrapped it up. The weather was just about perfect with no big wind on my favorite hilltop. A little breeze once in a while helped to cool things off a bit. All the equipment worked. I had fun!
