Comments:  This is a really fun contest.  The really top contestants have some pretty elaborate stations especially antenna-wise.  But you can have a lot of fun with far less. Sunspots — or the lack thereof — are just now coming into favor for the low bands.  For us in New England, it’s all about working Europe.  First night was not so good, but the 2nd night produced long runs of EU responding to my CQ.  Plus you need to work as many of the states and provinces. The “RI” multiplier is always a boon…took me several hours to work before Ed, W1HI called in.  Only other one was W1OP.  The phone version of this contest comes up the last weekend of the month…so I encourage anyone to give it a shot.  Antenna?  Use whatever you got.  Anyone else posting a score under “comments?”
