Check Valdez, it may be an IOTA I think
Hi hi - yep, that's about right. I wish it always worked that way. I did get
it to point north and worked a Valdez, Alaska station. And south again, for
Puerto Rico I think. Not close to the logbook to check right now though . .
. And there were lots that could hear me but that I could not copy . . .

Hi Barry -
I feel your pain. I called less than you but was listening almost every
waking minute, and wound up about the same as last year.
Contesting from the Left Coast is painful, doubly so near the bottom of the
I cudda done better if I could hear better: I was seeing traces replying to
my calls but which I just couldn't decode.
Clearly, I gotta improve my shack and my receiving antennas.
BTW, had a funny QSO with K7PAX. Don't remember the exact wording, but it
was something like this:
cq cq de bonus station WA6I WA6I k
wa6i wa6i de k7pax k7pax <-- with a bunch of decode noise
k7pax de wa6i
