Met my goal of having all the Mono-Banders in the air by contest time... Just Barely. The Flux started at 81 with low A and K indices which made 20 and 15 very useful . 10M was dead most of the weekend with minor flashes from the South now and then. 15M played well for the marginal conditions with limited openings to EU both days. A pleasure to have an open band to JA on each day! 20M was open early and well past sunset with loud signals from EU, AS, SA, NA, OC. while limited openings to AF. 40M was fun with plenty of stations to work. Wish I could have stayed awake longer on Friday Night. 80M was noisy but still OK. Need better antennas for DX on 80/40. The Mono-banders on 10/15/20 Meters work well but for DX contests need to be much higher. Not a full effort as I suffer from Headaches since my Car Crash in 2008, often needing to stop and relax while waiting for the pain meds to kick in to allow me to continue. The weather outside was simply fabulous making it hard to keep my fat old butt in the chair. Station here is an old IC-746, AL-80B at 500W out, 4 ele 10M yagi @ 25ft, 3 ele 15M yagi @ 30ft, 3ele 20M yagi @ 43ft, and a Dual Band 40M/80M Inv Vee at 39ft. Still "THE BEST RTTY CONTEST OF THEM ALL!" See you in CQ WW DX SSB!
