This was my first BARTG from a new QTH and a new country, so my goal was 
to beat my last SS40 score as G3SEK (2004). All 6 continents were in the 
bag at the end of the first session, but multipliers were way down 
because of the auroras.  On all three nights, auroral flutter on the 
north Atlantic path made most W/VE stations completely unprintable.

By Sunday morning, I almost gave up... but European QSOs kept coming and 
coming, as more people are catching onto the fun of RTTY contesting. By 
staying in the chair, the final QSO total reached 477 (including dupes), 
up by over 25% on previous efforts.

But nothing could replace those missing multipliers. Congratulations to 
S51MA for a fine score, with exactly the same number of claimed QSOs(!) 
and many more mults.

Thanks for all the QSOs, and all the hard work with repeats. Hope to see 
many more W/VE stations next time, under better conditions.
