For my low power station with wires, condix were fair to poor. I had a goal to break 100,000 points, but I didn't make it. Seemed like propagation to South America and the Caribbean was difficult from here. I worked about 5 Europeans after working none last year. Good condix to the Pacific on 20m late into the evening. I think that is why my 20M total is higher and my 40 and 80M are less than last year. The big story was 10 and 15 meters that saved the contest. The short skip was fantastic. I was amazed at the propagation at times between Southern California and Northern California. Even had a good path to San Diego some of the time. So, I was able to fill in a few states for WAS on 10 and 15 meters. Still about 20 more to go for 5BWAS. I wish more of the VE7's would have been on 10 and 15. Maybe some were single band entries. Worked VE7UF on 5 bands. The most amazing contact was with D4C at 0400z on 20, which is the latest I've ever worked him at night. Also surprised the opening to Europe on 20 was about 2200z rather than the usual 0300z. Tnx to all the stations on Hawaii for their 3 pointers. Also love all the various Alaskan prefixes now. Again, I don't think I worked the old KL7 one. Calls to watch out for: NR4M and NR5M.
