7L4IOUSingle Op 6MThanks for wonderful contest!
AC9EZSingle Op QRPWhat a great contest! Thank you everyone for the qsos. This year, I ran my (new to me) Yaesu FT-818nd at 5 watts to a 4-element yagi for 2 meters (up 16 feet) and a 5-element Yagi for 6 meters (up 12 feet). This was my first experience running ft8 on 2 meters and although I didn't make many contacts, I was thrilled to work W9EWZ in EN52 in Wisconsin! Not bad for vhf qrp hi hi. 73 and see you all in the September VHF contest. de Jim ac9ez
AF4JF/RRoverToo many station FT8 only
AG6XSingle Op AllSuper slow event for the Lower Left Coast this year
AJ6TSingle Op AllThe lack of propagation on 6 meters made this a tough contest. It took a lot of perseverance to stick with it and catch the bits of Es that did occur. I was lucky enough to catch one California grid on 6 meters. On the other hand, 2 meters was fairly good with easy QSOs out to 400 miles. I checked for SSB activity but found none, so all of my contacts were either FT8 or MSK144. I stayed away from the internet chat sites that are the staple of activity now in the ARRL VHF contests since the CQ rules do not allow self spotting (except oddly for EME and Meteor Scatter). The CQ rules for QSO assistance are poorly written and confusing, and it appears many operators were not aware of the CQ restrictions. 6m: K3s+KPA1500+80m OCFD 2m: FT857D+TE1450G+9el LFA ' Band Mode QSOs Pts Grid Pt/Q 50 FT8 79 79 47 1.0 50 MSK1 2 2 2 1.0 144 FT8 43 86 27 2.0 144 MSK1 1 2 1 2.0 Total Both 125 169 77 1.4 Score: 13,013 1 Mult = 1.6 Q's Looking forward to the 222 MHz and Up contest next month. 73, Walt, AJ6T, EM66

JA6WFMSingle Op 6MI would be happy to separate the digital and analog modes, Because, although it is a trend of the times, it is unfortunate that fewer stations are participating in CW/SSB

K3RLWSingle Op AllROUGH BUT I MADE IT WORK WITH MEAGER STATION
K3SKSingle Op AllDidn't have time to commit to serious operation, so I dabbled a little
K4HQKSingle Op 6MThe Mid Atlantic region was not favored with E-skip or any other form of propagation during my short time in this contest. I worked what I could in three hours before leaving on a trip. My 32 QSOs were limited to 10 grids in the Eastern portion of the U.S
K5NDSingle Op AllSlow on Saturday, but Sunday was great. Thanks everyone for the QSOs
K6NGNSingle Op All1st time out with new setup
K7BWH/RChecklogThis is a check log. I operated exactly on the grid line between two rare grids, DN15-DN16 grid line. I signed as rover /R but did not rove per contest rules since the station did not move. The goal was to give these two rare grids to FFMA chasers
K9OOSingle Op QRPHILLTOPPER
K9TFSingle Op 6MI was looking for new GRIDs on 6 meters for VUCC. I did work a few. To all, Please update LOTW TQSL Station location so others can receive LOTW credit for the zone you were operating from. Jim K9TF
KA0PQWSingle Op AllDidn't do much for the contest but fun anyway. 73 Matt ka0pqw
KA6BIMSingle Op 6MConditions were horrible this weekend. Nothing heard East of the Rockies. Not much on the West side of it either..... Dave ka6bim
KB0VSingle Op AllMostly 6M, with poor condx Saturday, then better Sunday
KB8ZRSingle Op 2M6m antenna issue, had FUN on 2m
KC1RETSingle Op AllUgh... I experienced torrential downpours during the contest including a tornado warning on Sunday morning. My 2m yagi was acting up showing a high SWR necessitating a power reduction to ~50w. Overall the condx were not great -- very few, extremely brief, openings on 6 and none observed on 2m. Only a handful of stations were heard on SSB FT8 was the money. Lots of room for improvement before the Sept. contest! Despite the challenges (because of?) I still managed to have fun! 6m - IC-756ProII, 4EL Homebrew yagi @ 20ft 2m - TS-2000, 11EL scavenged yagi @ 24ft
KC6NKKSingle Op All1st entry into this contest, from QTH
