OK, it may not seem like much to most of you, but this is actually a
personal best for CQWW CW. My previous record was 688 pts in 1990. Not
much, you say, but you have to start somewhere!
Operating time was severely limited, and was spread through three
sessions. My CW still needs lots of practice! Heard 8P9Z banging away
contacts on 28.017.7 at one point, but I couldn't get through myself.
Lots of interesting north-south propagation on 10m Saturday afternoon.
