Reasonable but not great conditions
from here. Fri was fine for
Carrib/lower 48 but no Eu heard here.
46 states except CT and VT. Sat at
our sunset heard CR2X (got a VE? from
Martti) and D4C but couldn't work
them. First several hours then very
poor anywhere, one way propagation as
is often the case up here. Improved
by midnite but then only the diehards
on the band and most were already in
the log by then. Finally added CT to
the total but never heard any VT.
VE1ZZ was only qso east of VE2. Was
worried about VE5 but 'ZX called in
finally. DX was KH6 KL7 C6 HR KP2 KP4
V3 V4 XE ZF HI LU.
Full size 4sq for
both TX and RX, didn't find any rx
antenna that worked better.
