a final count of 1185 were qsos made by our 4 stations. 40 was excellent- all day and night. 80 gave me runs of up to 119/hr just before sunrise. 20 was good and 15 was pretty hot too. 10 was essentially closed. Not much on 6m which surprises me with all the new rigs having that band.
Overall, these were the best conditions Ive seen in a couple of years. No rain. Hot but light QRN. A large turnout of ticks and spiders but mosquitos were weakly represented thanks to our ongoing drought.
How did others do in FD? Both clubs and individuals??? Feel free to jump in and trade experiences.
Mine was watching tiny spiders crawl out of my laptops keyboard as I entered qsos in the darkness just before sunrise.
