50 watts, homebrew 4el 6-meter Yagi at 15 ft from AZ, all SSB Poorer conditions than ARRL VHF. 6m opening about an hour into the contest to north-central US into Canada, but low operator density there. In-and-out Pacific NW openings in the afternoon and after dark Saturday. Texas opened up at 8am local time on Sunday and was open off and on into the afternoon, but not very strong or geographically widespread. Lost 30 minutes on Saturday from the fringes of a severe thunderstorm, and lost many potential QSOs from an unknown transient neighborhood noise source. A total of 5 in-state QSOs, including 2 from a SOTA activation. Highlight was very short skip into Colorado (370 miles) on Saturday, but only one QSO made.
