First time in this one. I don't normally work SSB contests, but I could not
resist jumping in when I heard the quality of stations and conditions on 20M.
I could only work a few hours, about 1.5 hrs S&P on Saturday afternoon / early
evening, then about 3.0 / 3.5 hrs on Sunday, with about 1.5 / 2.0 hrs in Run
Mode, which was allot of fun and a serious challenge due to all the stations on
Best conditions I've seen here this year. Was hearing quality signals on 20M's
2 hours after sunset on Saturday. At one point, I heard stations from all EU,
AF, SA, AS and OC, all about the same time, could not believe what I was
hearing. Only C I missed was Antarctica ( again :-) ).
Wish I could have worked the whole contest, would have been a blast, but I
don't know if my ears ( or my voice ) could take a 30+ hour contest of this
Worked several new SSB DXCC's TNX !! Hope you all use LoTW :-) It seems allot
of fun was had by all.
See you in the CW-WPX for sure.
