Greetings from Alaska.

Well, it was a tough day on 10 meters. Everything considered I am ok
with the day. That brings my totals for the first two days up to 10
QSOs. Here is what I managed to work.

n0rsv MN
w0lk AR
n7xv CA
k9yt WI
k5oi NM
kb7ww OR More on this in a second.
n4roa VA
k6iii CA

Art, KB7WW, and I went at it for 20 minutes trying to complete a contest
QSO. I had everything but his power. I finally just logged him as a
good QSO but not for the contest. Not 25 minutes later he was solid
copy and we banged out a quick QSO. Thanks for that first effort, Art.

On the other hand, I had the beam East all day until 2335Z. As soon as
I turned it West, there was N4ROA. There was big QSB but we finished in
rapid order. I really wonder how we did that. Was it the signal off
the back of the beam but taking off at a different angle? Or was it
some weird round the world sort of thing. I will have to get out my
globe and take a look. Thanks, Dan.

The lowest power worked today was KB7WW. Art was running 100 mW. N4ROA
and W0LK were running 250 mW and K5OI and I were big guns at 500 mW.
:-)

One more day. It is later in the day so perhaps more of you will be
on. 20 and 15 meters were not much use up here today. I did check from
time to time with no luck.

73, Jim
