This was my first time in a SSB contest in quite some time. Decided at the last minute to try a single band which is something that I have never done that I can recall on SSB. No doubts about it, this was quite the challenge. I also found that doing single band there was barely anyone to work during the day, so concentrated on nighttime work. Got to work Dave WNAFP, and also had a nice QSO about band conditions for a few minutes. There were Lots of stations from the US and EU to work in the evenings but it seemed that everyone was right on top of each other. Add QSB in there and it makes it double the fun! I did 98% S&P, tried running a couple of times but wasn't making very many Q's. Worked several EU and US stations from about 5 PM-12 AM both Friday and Saturday night. The band opened up nicely to EU and Africa around 1:30 in the morning on Saturday and To VK around 3 AM. Sunday morning around 2 AM the band conditions were fair with openings the EU , but had a high S-9 noise floor and QSB. Worked several South and Central American and a few Caribbean stations. Australia came in around 4 AM, and EU completely disappeared. Shut down around 5:30, too tired to do any more. Got on again around 4 PM Sunday, worked a few more stateside stations and a couple of EUs before shutting down early.
