Remarks :  
1.It is impossible to be competitive in this contest without packet as I was. We (me + OK1RF) do not have packet in our QTH since we participate practically only as SO/ALONE cat.  We should do something with it.
	2.As expected I have selected badly the pauses.
	3.RF jam which went into the computer was this time tremendous and I could not key the TX with the computer on 40 + 20 m - I had to come to conventional paddle and....., also I could not write numbers on the main keyboard, only on num. Keypad. As CT while receiving QTC sends out "R" which could not be stopped it jamed randomly the computer and mixed the just received QTC. Due to this a lot of people must have thought I have completely forgotten the CW and become idiot. I do apologize to those.
	4.The summer operation has also its own specifica - i.e. - in our cottage you have to select if you prefer to have closed doors and windows and temperature well well over 40 deg. Celsius or open and in few minutes be surrounded by dozens of flies. In Saturday I selected the letter in Sunday the first and both .........

Considering all this I am not going to compete for top EU score but I still had a lot of fun.

This is to certify that in this contest I have operated
my transmitter within the limitations of my license and have
observed fully the rules and regulations of the contest.
