Default ARRL DX contest

Well, it's over, the last contest in our apartment with limited antenna options.

Needless to say, conditions ranged from very bad to horrible. The majority of the stations that I could hear above the noise were running KW power, probably with a high gain antenna.

In spite of that, I was able to contact a handful of Caribbean stations , and 2 Hawaiian's.

All with 85 watts to an Alpha vertical with no counter poise in between apartment buildings.

Anyone else participate in the contest?
