Goal for the contest was to see if I could get close to the EU record. It seems
like I have passed it and if I have not been a too big lid I should pass log
check. The contest was fun, Saturday was amazing and it felt like very high
activity from US, maybe because of the Easter holidays? However Sunday was
horrible, barely got any propagations towards US, just sporadic ones where the
aurora let through the signals. All east coast worked on Sunday was via skew
path near South America. Kind of wish I had read the prognosis and maybe
wouldn't have taken half of the off-time on Saturday and instead more on

Thanks for the QSOs!
