In comparison to CW part that was horrible. I did not expected much - Low Power
from central Europe on SSB in bottom of sunspot cycle is hard always. But
this... Because I could not went through even to many big guns I gave up and
just played with my antennas for about 3 hours. One thing I want to mention: on
80m some US to stations were calling CQ above 3800 and listening around 3620 kHz
or so. I have (and many other guys I know) my 80 m antennas tuned either to CW
part of 80m band or to Phone part of the band. Or it is switchable. In the
middle of the band, where is nothing for contestant, I have SWR around 1:10 or
even worse on all my antennas... Therefore those who were listening there I can
not try to call at all.
And The last note: miracle antennas of LZ5R. Look here:
https://photos.app.goo.gl/joqQ4WWvoFXBxuU67 There are many EU big guns with big
PAs, 4el yagis, phased foursquares, ... And on 3785 is sitting LZ5R, 25dB
stronger than the rest of EU. Isn´t it miracle? And moreover, the signal was in
terrible quality about 10 kHz wide... 
I wonder if the contest committee will do anything - there must be many reports
from other stations and SDR recordings... 
Thanks to all who digged my signal from the mess!
