If you want to catch more fish, try different parts of the lake!

This past weekend was the PSKFEST contest.  I decided to see how many states I could work that I haven't worked before.  So when all was said and done, I worked 23 new states! The way I did this was simple:  I called CQ on different parts of the waterfall.  If I stayed in one spot, I only seemed to get a few contacts, and then none at all.  But as soon as I switched to a different part of the waterfall, I'd get more contacts and a new state or two.  I only made 44 contacts total, but that's pretty good for me since I didn't spend more than 3 hours on the contest.
