Great conditions on 6M, we had a great run on Es on 2M.  The moon was very uncooperative...rose too early and was too close to the sun. The 6M score looks great....However, K5TR made 1898 QSOs on 6M.  He has less mults that I do, so I have the highest number of mults ever made in a single coontest and I have the highest SCORE ever made on 6M, but I really wanted the highest number of QSOs......The performance of the rest of the bands was pretty bad.  Clearly, we will have to make improvements......HI...
I feel pretty certain that K5TR and I are the only stations that have ever made over 1800 QSOs in a contest.....maybe there is another lurker out there, but I sort of doubt it.....

K7HPT/Rover DN05, DN06, DN16, DN17, DN18, DN08, DN07
John and I had a great time working the contest. We covered a lot of ground, 648 miles of it! We worked from 7 grids. I also spotted some great areas for September (if the snow melts). We made it within 2 miles of DN15 but were stopped at 6000 feet and a 20 foot wall of snow that had slid onto the road.

KI7JA/Portable DN03

Incredible openings on 6m.  Even with the difficulties I had operating portable, this was a fun  contest.  With the double hop to the East Coast even into late night, the propagation finally came alive.  The highlight of the contest was working W7CE and WA7TZY on 1296 at distances of 286 and 317 miles respectively.  This was a lot of fun.

K6EL Single-Op Low CM99
Noisy conditions and poor 2m prop created a real challange. Not much worked over 200 miles on 2m but 2 new grids, DN01 and DN03. New antennas here improved my results despite the conditions or lack of stations. 6m openings were sparse but productive adding several multipliers.

K7AWB Multi-Limited DN17
FT-736R for 222 MHz failed night before contest;first time for Palstar Commander VHF-144 amplifier as high power category;

KB7ME/Portable CN71
Portable in Grid CN71, six meter prop poor!

N7EIE/Rover CN87, CN88, CN78, CN77, CN76, CN86, CN97, CN96
Great contest both days. We drove all the way around the WA Olympic Peninsula Saturday, and I drove to the NE corner of Mt. Rainier Sunday. 8 grids activated is fine. Had a lot of fun. CU next year!

VE7IHL Multi-Limited CN89
Operated from Seymour Mountain with Brian VE7WEB. First attempt at doing a Multi-Op Contest.

K7HSJ Single-Op Low CN94
First time in 50 years I have had no Sporadic E on 50 MHz. Very disappointing.
