The HF bands were a challenge with 40-meters having a S8-S9 noise problem. 20-meters was good but 15 & 10 not so.
I could only spend a short amount of time on Saturday because of other commitments. Made four SSB contacts on 20-meters. Heard a number of other stations but could not contact.
One of the VE5 stations turned his beam to better hear me. He then mentioned he would swing it SE to work the richer territory of the northeast USA. Clearly Canadian amateurs in BC would have to work harder to make contacts.
My humble log of four SSB contacts.
