10M may have been better than it has been in a decade, but I still feel ripped off by conditions. The band was alive but struggling to breathe (we get spoiled rather quickly in this game, I guess). There was no European opening either morning here -- just EI, F and SM worked all weekend (and both SMs were off a skew while beaming JA). Whatever antenna the TM6M lads are using, I want one. They were the only European station heard here both days. Highlights were 9J2BO calling in early Saturday morning, VP8NO calling in at almost exactly noon Sunday (usually a magic window for ZS calling in), and working five ZLs, T88 and E51, all strong from the Pacific. Missed any VK action. Flux opened at 140 and fell to 135 by the end, with the A-index rising to 8 as the test wore on. Aurora was elevated for long periods, and the polar path was simply non-existant for much fo the time. No access to Europe means a steep tilt on the multiplier table for those out West. This was very much a domestic rate-fest from here. Qs US 727 EU 5 <-- yes, a whole continent = 5 Qs JA 66 VE 36 PY 20 LU 15 Missed ND, NE, SD, DC and DE. Just 7 XE mults worked -- what a disappointment beaming south. Enjoyed a few runs of 200+ with rate around 100/hr, but really missed the Euro and XE multipliers. There's always next year. Thanks for the contacts and happy Christmas. See you in the RAC Winter and Stew Perry next weekend for one last round of fun before the holidays. -- Bud VA7ST Qs Mult Score 2011 925 96 355,200 HP 2010 105 30 12,600 2009 86 10 3,440 2008 22 7 616 2007 23 19 920 HP 2006 163 29 18,908 2005 212 41 34,768 2004 36 20 2,880 2002 280 60 66,720
