Weather played a big role this weekend, both from space and Mother Nature. Solar disturbances weren't helpful, but losing power from heavy rain, wind and snow was the knock out punch. Lost all of Sunday morning due to a power outage, which is unfortunate because the morning EU run on 20m was one of the highlights of the contest. Bummer. Finally fixed the 160m antenna. It was sitting in the supporting tree and I think most of the energy was going into the tree. After getting it out in the open, I was able to work everyone I heard, except 9A1A and KP4KE. Best DX was CU4DX. 15m was...minimal. Minimal JA and minimal everything. It's tough looking at that low QSO and mult total. 40m was up and down. JA signals seemed to ebb and flow through the night. Had a nice little EU run 3 hours before local sunset Saturday afternoon. Other than that, the band was mediocre. 80m was good, but it's - you know - 80m from the Pacific Northwest. It'll never be like working 80m from W1. Worked some EU and had nice JA runs. In fact, most JA stations were stronger here than 40m. 10m was a bust. LW8DQ was the only station heard and worked. Thanks to all for the Q's. 73, Mitch, K7RL
