Another fine contesting year is history.  The Stew Perry contest is a great way
to end the season. Thank you Boring Amateur Radio Club for putting on the best
contest format around.  One night contests are great as I am getting a bit too
old for serious 2 day contests. 
  The contest started great with early openings to the US. Signals were strong
all night long from the US and summer time QRN levels were not too bad. 
However, European signals were down and only managed 16 EU qsos.  Where were
all the great EU signals that I was hearing in the ARRL 160 contest which
couldn't be worked for credit.  KL7RA called in early with a very nice signal,
W7 stations seemed extra loud, and when I started working strong KH6 stations
(6 in all) I thought there would be a great JA opening. Wrong. Topband just
shows us that when you think you have it figured out, it will do something that
you are not expecting.  There are only 7 JA stations in the log as compared to
about 40 from last year.  JA qsos are nice for the score as my longest qso was
with JA4CUU at 36 points.  Hope to see you all next year in the CQ 160 contest.
