Wow, there was a lot of Ohio activity. Thanks for the huge turnout!
On 75/80m in the first few hours the band was hopping, especially on SSB.
to be able to work other Ohio stations on 40 and 20m, though the quantity of
stations that called in was on the lower than expected.
Many thanks for all the QSOs and especially the QSYs. Thanks to my station
hosts Pete & Karen, and for the help of K8LEE and K8QID in getting some
antennas set up before the contest.
I decided to go HP at the last moment, and after running LP for the past few
years, I'm not sure power really makes that big of a difference. I made
about 50 QSOs more than my LP total last year, though I did work a lot of EU
this year. I think scores come down to strategy more than power in the
Rigs: K3 & FT1000D

80m: 4-square, 40m: dipole at 40', 20: 5 ele yagi at 80'
SOR2: was kind of lame again this year, but I did have 2 radios going.
73, Kenny K2KW / K8O
