I was busy the last week so didn't even realise there was a huge CME three days
before the test. On Saturday I made a slow start due to some serious setup
issues and it was already five hours into the contest when I first switched on
the rig and noticed that horrible condition.
This did not disappointed me. I was rather encouraged by this, because if the
condition was better, I must be way behind to other competitors due to the late
start. The band was so dead that I couldn't even hear them.
So I actually geared up. Since 15m was dead, people seemed to come down to 20m
so it was pretty productive under even those conditions.
Then on Sunday the condition was progressively better. On Saturday I cannot
even think I can reach 900Qs under this condition. (But I know one of other
competitors made more than 1000.)
Anyway in retrospect it was as enjoyable as ever.
Many thanks for Q(SO and TC)s!
