A tough nut to crack, with 20m fully loaded with big signals.
Unassisted so I had to dig for my own gold. The problem is some operators rely
on their packet pile up and don't ID very often (unless their call is QRZ?).
Sometimes I decied to jump in and work 'm and then ask for their call. Luck was
on my side, it weren't dupes.
The good thing about the band being so packed was you had to listen for every
possible clear frequency to start a run. That way I encountered many (weak) DX
Also, two times I returned to my old running QRG after a S&P excursion to find
it taken by... a double mult! Woohoo ;o)
Sadly missed out on some easy double mults (KL + KH6) and I bailed out early
without a LU country mult. How did that happen??? Tired and fed up with SSB I
guess - long live CW!
For KH6 I might blame conditions but I worked a true KL1 on Friday when
checking the setup and I worked a dozen PY so LU should have been possible
CU in WW CW, hopefully SOAB with beter pre-contest preparation...
