John,

I looked and called North several times during the contest but didn't 
hear you. North is my worst direction, though as the house on the ridge 
just north of me is basically at the same level as my beam.

I ended up with 840 points total: 12 Q's and 9 grids on 144 and 16 Q's 
and 12 grids on 50 MHz. My best DX was W9RVG in EM57 (southern Illinois) 
on 144 MHz. I only operated on Saturday from 2pm till about 11pm. The 
sporadic E clouds seemed to sit right over northern Indiana and northern 
Ohio, preventing any good openings on 6m from here.

Since the lake causes some interesting propagation, especially on summer mornings, there are probably a lot of opportunities to work each other if anyone is listening.  Maybe we could set a time and freq on contest Sunday mornings for folks in this area to gather and give each other those Qs?
