CY9 Update #8 - July 5th

Arrived back in Pictou, NS around 3:09am local time Friday.

Started tearing down at 6am Thursday, and the final thing to be dismantled was the 6m station.

Left the Island aprox. 2pm with a clear sunny day (our first day in the 20'sC)

We made aprox. 12,000 Q's on 6m-160m, with around 275 on 6m. Best dx was ct3ft, w7rv & n5jhv (2m rig took a direct hit from several large breakers down in the channel and was soaked, so we could not get 2m ssb or FM packet qrv)

Beacon was on 50.101MHz virtually 100% of the time, running anywhere from 50w to 500w depending on other station QRM, etc.

Did have EU 48MHz video (at times VERY strong) nearly every day for literally hours at a time.

Heard the eh7/b on 50.006 for 10 seconds one day.

More later, 73 from the Boys of St.Paul,
A tired, cold, wet and bruised group o' guys!
