So, did anyone operate the 10-meter contest this weekend? I listened a little bit on Saturday and could not hear any activity.

I sure did

Made 200 casual Q's and didnt work anything really special. I worked ZL6 on cw and S9SS on phone but even those are still easy countries on most bands. Sunday around 1pm, the bands were really good.

DX worked

I picked up 3A on 40m cw at midnight Sat night/Sun morning for #243

I will just be glad when the solar cycle starts to improve. 10 is a lot of fun when it is going strong.

I've been playing alot on 30m lately. What a fantastic band. I built a 1/4 wave vertical which is fed 6' above the ground. I have 32 tuned 1/4 wave radials and it plays like a champ.

10m is fun, I have over 150 DXCC on 10m. However this time of the cycle, 20m during the day and 40m overnight is where the DX stays.
I am working stuff on 40m cw every night which are new ones on that band.

I was looking at my HF log the other day and I had only two contacts on ham freqs for 2005. Most of my HF is on MARS right now. Maybe I can do some during the Christmas/New Year vacation. I like working the special event and club stations. Worked KH6BB on 10-meters one evening. He was calling CQ and no one was answering. Worked him with my HTX-10 and a dipole. Here is my "web page". I have not updated it for quite some time now. http://www.qsl.net/wd9cyi/
