[Mich VHF UHF Society] Contest -- semi-blah, and a suggestion

Saturday was a grind. 6m was open for hours on Sunday, but mostly just to Florida so the grid count on 6m wasn't that high.  I did work 1 DX station in Nicaragua and a couple of Mexico stations on 6.

2m conditions were decent, but there were no extraordinarily long contacts via tropo.  I did work K5QE and VE1SKY on FSK441 meteor scatter for "DX" on 2m.

Totals were 6m: 114 QSOs/48 grids  2m: 50 QSOs/28 grids.  16,264 total score.

So, how did everyone do?  Had a really good hour or so to the southeast about 7:00 last night, but otherwise pretty much a grind.  Ended up with 104/46 on 6M and 5/5 on 2M, claimed score 5814.  No DX; pretty much everything local or in 4-land.

A thought/suggestion: this morning 2M was really good, with easy Qs into southern Ohio, but no one really around.  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?
