Well that was interesting.... As others have noted, conditions were not great. I thought about quitting when 20 meters crapped out three hours into the contest Saturday and signals on 40 were still weak. Kept going and 40 meters picked up nicely, then QSOs started coming on 80 and even 160. Sunday I had pretty good propagation on 20 meters much of the day, again till 2100Z, but 40 meters was a real challenge. Special thanks to the mobiles who came to 20 meters throughout the day! Last year I didn't operate full time but my score was heavily weighted toward CW. This year I CQed a lot on 20 meter SSB on Sunday and some on 40 meter SSB on Saturday night. There were more casual Georgia SSB ops than I expected, and they kept me interested throughout the day. One indication of the poor conditions is that I had no trouble finding and holding a clear run frequency on a weekend... Mobiles contributed 187 of my 455 QSOs (QSOs/counties): N4N (64/41), N0G (48/25), KN4Y (25/21), N4I (19/15), KB4KBS (16/14), N4DU (6/5), WX4TC (6/5), NM2L (3/3). N4PN and KU8E were good for 8 QSOs each (CW and phone, 160 - 20), and I worked several other several other fixed stations on 6 band/modes. I worked 131 different counties. Thanks to the sponsors and Georgia stations for a fun weekend, and perhaps conditions will be better next year.
