It was off to Hay Bay after our club's regular Sunday breakfast today to use the high dipoles we have set up out there at Don-VE3MNE's cottage.
Today was the Colorado 14er's big day, and it was for that event that I primarily wanted to use the high antennas. However, the Gods didn't smile and I didn't make a single contact with any of the Colorado stations. Better luck next year....as the saying goes.
I did manage to work five stations before I closed down the station:
KD0ETC and KD0EFW who were both activating US lighthouses;
W8COD who was activating the submarine USS Cod;
XL31812, a special event station celebrating our glorious victory in the war of 1812; and
9A208DX, a special event station celebrating 20 years of the 9A callsign.
So not a wasted day on the bands.
