I had to miss the ARRL June VHF QSO Party this year (again) due to out-of-town family commitments, so I was looking forward to operating some rate on six meters in this contest.

Propagation did not cooperate this year, and I made less than a quarter as many contacts as I did last year. I worked no skip contacts east of Iowa, but I did work some grids in Manitoba I'm pretty sure I've never worked before.
