This contest was loads of fun with me realizing that I need to try a different antenna next year. The antenna I used was a fairly low inverted L because it was slightly more quiet than my vertical. I worked lots of CA stations until late this afternoon. The last hour I could only work the equator and south but I did get a VK2 station. This was all mainly on CW and all search and pounce.
Now it is time to focus on my National Parks on the Air activation on Jan 2nd. 73 everyone.
