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?
