    Does "ALL" mean 11m? You've never invited before. Albeit, now that Sporadic-E has finished for the year here in western Canada and regular DX hasn't visited for over a year, I don't expect any contacts now or in October. [​IMG]

    Considering this is in the WWDX.com amateur radio club section of the amateur radio forum I would expect 11m is NOT included. I thought we ran different contests on the amateur bands and on 11m. Since I have not participated in the past due to zero antennas up maybe I am wrong. By the grace of God I should have an all-band inverted L antenna up by the contest weekend.

    This is the weekend folks. Most contacts and points gets the prize of travelling to Capt KW's QTH to install all the yagi's for him.... Of course on your dime.

    Didn't see much participation during the last one, but I did get to meet a couple forum members on the air.

    Maybe this time will be better?
