I worked WAS on 10M over the contest weekend. My last three states were IL, PA, and MT.
I put up a low Moxon rectangle at 19 ft to work short scatter paths that might be missed by my dipole at 40 ft.
OTOH, the day after the contest I worked K0AY in Mongomery County, PA, on 10M SSB with that dipole!
Perhaps the most important advice is to listen for the weak stations--while you might get lucky with a loud meteor scatter contact, more than likely you will need to dig someone out of the noise--not easy when the DX stations are really, really loud at the same time.
