Fortunately, stable solar conditions most of the 24 hour period made for some nice runs. My goal was to break 1 million points and work 2,000 Qs. Check. I thought going assisted would provide more action, but it didn't seem to help that much. The majority of mults worked were S&P, and a high number of those never showed up on my mult list. Rate was pretty steady most of the time, until about the last few hours. 20m was the money band with 40m not far behind. At first glance, 15m didn't look very impressive on my spectrum scope, but a nice opening to NA kept the rate steady. Did hear a number of big gun EU stations on 15m, but signals were extremely weak and I couldn't get any attention from most. Also heard a weak A71HQ but couldn't break their EU and eastern US pileup. The same was true on 40m where most EU signals were marginal at best. 10m was open into zone 7 by mid-morning. K0RF and N3BB were loud, but that was it. I kept checking for any action throughout the day, but NADA. VE3EJ and W9RE had very impressive signals on 160m and were easily the loudest stations beyond zone 6. PJ2HQ also had a nice signal. Thanks to all for the Qs! 73, Mitch, K7RL
