We really worked out as much of the bands as possible. This was not a lack of effort or skill. We also had much fun. We tried everything we could to make a few more QSOs or get the next multiplier. We only had a few dupes compared to prior years. This year a Waller Flag was added to the mix of receiving antennas. We could hear very well on both 80 and 160. It seems we hear better than the stations we called. 8Q7DV and A44A were both very strong and easy copy on 80m Sunday but we could not be heard….even when there were no other callers! But this happened very often…seems that the DX stations must have a high noise level or no rx antennas. We only run 1500 watts! We did get 40 zones on 40m. This was a great surprise. We really thought we could get 100 DXCC on 80m but just could not be heard when we called! I hope next year that low band conditions are better and we can work more DX. Thanks for all the QSOs and digging us out of the QRM and noise. 73, Craig K9CT
