Okay ... so I got hooked into this event last night around 0200 UTC on 80m. I was going to stay out of it, but no other bands were open. Haven't that much activity on 80m in a long time. Hung around until 0645 UTC and it was still going, but activity was starting to dwindle. Heard AK4MK and KK4HEG .
That was a lot of activity on 80m PSK which begs the question, why isn't 80m is use more ? This would be great if 80 was open because a lot more members could work on their 366. When I worked on mine I operated a lot of 80m.
( On a footnote I noticed in the WFD rules that it was specifically stated "No FT-8 Allowed" !)
Heard on 80m last night were just about all the states except for AK & HI , but I saw someone working a KL7 who may have been in AK or stateside.
Think that 070 members should explore more 80m contacts before spring arrives. Also worked a station in PA who wanted to work 160m , but was chased off by the contest and told him there was a group of PODXS members looking to operate 160 and he should look for them next weekend. . Next weekend may be good for 160m, keep your fingers crossed.
That's my report from Illinois, land of taxes and the best politicians money can buy !
