    Well, conditions were poor anyway. I struggled along but finally threw in the towel. I thought with the Sun waking up, the bands might be better this year. :(

    Actually they were pretty good right at the beginning of the contest; I worked a bunch on 20 and 15, and a couple on 40 even. Then it all went away.

    A ham buddy and I were camping this weekend. He made a number of contacts on 15m at 5w using an MFJ-1815t antenna.

    I didn't participate, but chased POTA activators instead. However, when I got up this morning and spun the dial (from my hammock), folks were going strong on 80m and 40m, but 20m and above was silent.

    Yep. I got off to a decent, if not spectacular, start on 20...things began to go south...went to 40....and it was downhill from there. Well, OM, there's always next year I guess. :oops:

    You all back east definitely live on another planet. Here's the ionogram from your nearest digisonde: bye2.jpg bye2.jpg bye2.jpg

    It's quite obvious that you East Coasters stole our ionosphere. We want it back. (Ionosondes don't lie)
