Comments: The 1st night was collecting PC for WF1B/K6STI softwares
from various computers/hard disks. We put up some 20m wire for the 
low bands on Saturday evening but unfortunately it didn't work at all.
Later on Sunday we found that our power supply was not in a-ok condition.
We changed it and then also disappeared serious RF problems on 15 mtrs.
Sorry, if my fsk signal was odd on Saturday! 
The bands perform with many strange ways when A index is 97...
Propagation was like a dream on Saturday morning. 10 meters was booming
into Japan/Far East and South America. Later 15/20m opened very nicely
to USA. W3LPL was pushing through on 10 mtrs on Saturday and 3 others
on Sunday. Unfortunately condx on Saturday and Sunday afternoons were 
not so hot but I am very satisfied because I worked over 1000 qsos 
without much qs on low bands and because my last Rtty contest was at 
OH1AF in the 80's. It sure makes working rtty very smooth if you use 
WF1B and K6STI programmes! Just pushing Insert and Page Down keys!!!
Thanks to Jan, OH1ZAA/OH0MZA/NN0Y/etc. for superb hospitality (beers,
bread and pork!). Getting a cold beer after each 100 qs is a great motivator!
(Jan, I will drink "one-million-points-beer" next year!)
