Looks like 4 stations this year, off  commercial mains, operating   ssb, cw, digital.  Bands will be 80-6m.  100w.  This years new secret weapon is a club hexbeam to go up at around 35 ft.  for 20-15-10-6M.

See you this weekend.

a rough count of 1200 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.
