This was a WAE CW experiment from my home QTH after a few years break.
I tried a new SW-version but found soon that the QTC-window did not work
properly. I had no QTCs received during the first hours. Then I decided to use
an other SW. Moving the firs log into an other SW was challenging for my
skills. I could not check multipliers or dupes any more.
The weather here has been excellent for the last few weeks, temperature 25-30 C
and water in our lake 26-27 C. Temptation to go swimming instead of contesting
was very high after the failed choice of logging-SW. I love the QTC-trafics but
after the SW-troubles I never got back the right moods for chasing QTCs.
Summer time QRN was quite high especially on 80 and 40. 10 m was just as poor
as it can be.
On Saturday activity sounded good but no more on Sunday.
I sincerely congratulate those who copied more than 2500 QTCs. I could not do
that although I use all my ten fingers for typing, two hitting the keys and
other eight for searching.
Thanks for the QSOs and looking forward to the next WAEDC.
