A very part-time affair here, due to personal commitments.
I didn't get a chance to start up the radio until 0600 on Sunday morning, at
which time there was very little audible on both 80m and 40m.
I was able to hear several W's on 40m, including W0SD (at S9+), but he wasn't
hearing many EU stations at all.
20m was poor until the W's started to come in at 1230GMT, and then I mainly
went S&P picking up new States/provinces.
It was pleasing to see and work Jamie as VP9/WW3S, so I assume you fixed those
I did keep checking 10m, but it was dead, apart from one time when I heard some
weak RTTY, and then saw it was V5/DJ2HD. I called and worked him first time, but
as he wasn't in the contest, I didn't enter it into the log.
My only real gripe was UU9JQ, who kept on calling me when I was trying to work
someone else. He caused me to go through multiple repeats of my serial number
to various folk. Bad operating practice!
I noted the comments about ending a call with CQ, and saw many folk who ought
to have heeded this!
There were more than a few stations simply sending TU QRZ after working
someone, with no call shown at all.
Still, it was fun, and I enjoyed it.
My log is now on LoTW, but - as always - paper cards are welcomed.
