Thanks again to Mark, K2AX, for letting us take over his station for the weekend and also to his wife Donna and his daughters for their patience and hospitality. Thanks also to Mark for pitching in and operating along with Steve, NY3B, Victor, KD2HE, and Don, AK2S Band conditions were very different that CQ CW a couple months back. The low bands performed well and opened early. It was exciting to work long-haul DX on 80m like ZL and also KH6 on 160m. We bagged 3D2JS (Fiji) via long path shortly before 2100z on Sunday. A little later we got DS (South Korea) and DU (Philippines) over the North Pole and also VU (India) with long path via the South Pole. On the other hand, I think we also worked every school kid with a AA battery, a scrap of wire, and an oscillator in Europe. I never knew there were so many QRP stations. The encouraging thing about that is that I think it tells us we were probably loud there and they thought we'd be easy to work. The reports of T and TT for power from some Puerto Rico stations had us scratching our heads. Personally, I think they were trying to remind is that the island is still mostly without power. My guess is that they were saying "we have no power". As usual, there were a handful of other colorful power reports; 73, 99, 999, 88, etc. We'll start prepping for SSB later this week. Go FRC!
