Man was that something eh? I sat up on 29.000 and started rocking a pile-up. Good times, got several new countries and had a great time with my gear.

Anyone else surprised? It was the best I have seen 10 mtrs since I can remember!

I agree.... 10 Meters was packed with activity all the way to 29.400 at times during the weekend. In nearly 30 years of DXing, I have NEVER seen 10 Meters so full of signals.  Overall, conditions were great for the CQWW.

Yup, nothing like a contest to "open up the bands". 10 was open until after midnight here. I thought 15m was the hero band, as it seemed to be open every time I listened in and gave away a few numbers. Got a few new ones too!

I was on 15 for most of the time when 10 was open. The other guy was running rates 2x of mine on 10, JAs and otherwise Smiley

Yea, I started working the band from one end to the other, and was amazed at how much of the band was being used. It was wide open. Had a lot of fun. 15 and 20 was nice too.

Our Multi-2 operation logged just over 2,000 contacts on 10.
First time we've ever hit that number on ANY band.  Smiley

Conditions were almost as good as the March CQ WPX contest. I was able to work Australia and Japan from Long Island
on a 5/8 vertical and 100 watts. Most of Europe also. On another note: CQ is in big trouble with their magazine as we all know- are months behind with paper magazine delivery, but want the contest log in 5 days. How funny!

I was a little disappointed in 20, actually. It seemed that 21MHz and up were so packed, the EU guys never moved down - the spots on Sunday were pretty disappointing Sad

I had a ball on 10m working QRP, just picking and choosing my contacts, 35 QSO, 21 Zones and 30 countries, 20 of them new. 5 Hours well spent i reckon. Smiley
