3830 Reflector Comments:
I didn't arrive to Lloyd's station until the first 26 hours of the contest
elapsed. I've now been reading reports on 3830 that conditions were
during the first day, prior to the occurrence of the solar

weekend. I had absolutely no idea that everyone else was
experiencing a big
slowdown. I just wasn't around!
Got off to a great
start at 0200z Sunday with big pileups on 15m. Took a break
for "happy hour"
(sashimi and beer) at 0400z. Afterwards, I enjoyed my best

Only 100 contacts were made during the final 7 hours
