Whew, what a slog ! This years contest was a quite a challenge with
great condx on Saturday, apart from 10m, but awful condx on Sunday.

I am very pleased with the improved qso total from last years 624q and
also the overall score increase from 302k to 438k. I searched and
pounced throughout the contest and operated around 30hrs...90 per cent
of the qsos were made on Saturday, but some good dx was worked on
Sunday. 72 countries were worked.

I worked 520 unique calls and the best dx: 

40m ZL, KP4, EX, VP5, 3V and 7X
20m CE, JA, 4L, SV5, ZD8, 3V and 6V
15m PY, ZP and 4X
10m EA6 and 9H

I am not sure about one call, the guy either cannot send cw very well or
the call was correct at 8SL5PFP..can anyone confirm this ?! 

So, thanks to all who worked me and inspite of calling 3DA and JY8 who
did not respond I had alot of fun.

See you Nov in CQWW with a mighty 100w as GD4UOL !
