Contesting without internet, hard to get used to that again.
I became much depending on the ease of having the cluster spots and all other support of  internet. The band map is empty you have to search your self.
Strong signals and interesting DX in the FOC contest.
Do FOC  members ever work low power?  10m was good open to W and Caribbean. But not much BSCI activity on 10m. Reasonable propagation good strong W's on 80M FOC  contest is a bit a strange thing. Excellent operators excellent signals mostly Anglo Saxon HAM's It is a bit out of line with the HAM idea.An exclusive elite group using the HAM bands for a member only contest. But it is good to hear that good operators are still plenty.
378 Q  80/40/20/15/10 Preparing  a beam for 15/10  a 4 ele light construction. but in this type of weather I will be on dipoles only in our PACC contest next weekend.

I hope  to be reconnected to the internet by then.
Another useless visit of an technician and a couple more phone calls I was  promised  …
