Synopsis:
We all have Covid fatigue and we all have LBF (Lousy Bands Fatigue). Solar flux was 77, only a bit better than last year.  Oh well, bands will be better next year. How many years have we been saying that now? Optimism fatigue.
 
Participation was low between fatigue and lousy band conditions - next to dead in some geographic areas.  One-way propagation caused many CQs and calls to go unanswered.  I spent hours working my 19 contacts, most in the noise.  Then, Jim W1PID answered my CQ with a 599 signal and me the same to him. A momentary NM-NH S-9 path.  Wasn't that lucky again!  Summary sheets indicated we all struggled for our QSOs.  .
 
Regardless, everyone claimed to have fun, even though frustrated at times, whether they got on the air for a QSO or two, only had an hour or two to play radio, or those that hung in there in spite of  conditions. Quite a few SOTA stations were active, giving some of us some extra points ... and they appreciated the extra TTF (chaser) contacts.  Thanks to the three SOTA stations that turned in a Summary Sheet.  Thanks to all who participated and hope it was a nice break from our current lives (or lack of same) and the joy of hearing your call come back to you for a QRP QSO.

72, Paul NA5N
