    I am not sure how many people participated. I tried a little and talked to some people but nobody from here. I tried the AM channels and the LSB as well. It seems that whenever the conditions would be good, there was too much traffic. Maybe next time we could do USB channels? I have never heard anyone contesting on 11m, but I have heard some on 75m before so that is the way I proceeded. I really didn't have a strategy, and I don't really know what I am doing but it was fun trying anyway.
