ON5ZO + classic Telnet cluster = Multi Op. OB11-3 = 5 el on 6m boom @22m, K3 + kW, N1MMLogger (accept no substitute!). We should say: "The best ARRL 10m contest in almost a decade!". But of course, us contesters say: "Lousy conditions way off from WW SSB and even WW CW". In fact this was my first ARRL 10m test with a real tower, a real antenna and QRO. And sunspots! So I have nothing to compare to. I tried mixed mode with packet which makes me M/S but now I have a benchmark for the future. No the propagation wasn't as good as in WW SSB. But we're gonna be very unhappy if we keep that weekend in mind as 'the standard for 10'. The band opened wide around noon here, before noon things were slow. And around 16.00 utc it seemed someone pulled the plug out of the bathtub and the signals slowly went down the drain. Around 17.30 utc, the band was closed. Nevertheless it was fun. Thanks to all for the QSOs. 73 de Franki ON5ZO = OQ5M
