W3IY/R Results for June VHF Contest 2002
We had a great time in the June contest. We started in FM15, and then covered FM25,26,16,17,27,28,29,19,18,& 08. Propagation was below average at the beginning in NC with a 20 knot wind blowing from a northeaster off the shore. As the sun set, calmness prevailed, and coastal ducting began to form, and we cashed in running lots of stations on the bands through 10 GHz up into New England. It was really fun, staying busy all night from the Virginia Beach area working guys left and right.
